Solidarity with Israel after the Simchat Torah massacre

The Martin Buber Institute for Jewish Studies expresses its deep shock at the brutal attack by Hamas on Israel. In the face of the indescribable scenes of the worst massacre against Jews since the Second World War, we remember the countless victims and their families and stand in solidarity with Israel. We condemn all attempts to justify the violence. In particular, we also express our solidarity with our friends and partners at Israeli universities.
