Congregation Yeshivat Tzion and all of its members CONDEMNS any and all acts of violence between people. We CONDEMN acts of violence against law enforcement/Governmental authorities by the public and we CONDEMN unlawful acts of violence against the public by Law enforcement/Governmental authorities. We also CONDEMN any and all types of racial injustice and racism.
We also agree with the United States of America's Judicial system's idea of due process, and we don't pass judgment on anyone who has been charged with any crimes until due process of the judicial system is complete. We truly believe a person is "innocent until proven guilty".
Lastly, as an Army of Light (Ohr Tzava) we focus upon weapons of CREATIVITY, CONSTRUCTION, and EDUCATION; not weapons of destruction.
In honor and in memory of Officer Noah Shahnavaz we will be praying 'The Mourners Kaddish' (a Jewish prayer for those in mourning). Our condolences go out to the Shahnavaz family.
