Rambam Lowers Flags to Half-Staff to Honor Victims in Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting
Haifa, Israel, October 27, 2018…Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa has lowered its flags to half-staff to honor the victims in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania synagogue shooting in which 11 people were murdered.
Professor Rafi Beyar, CEO and Director of Rambam issued the following statement:
On behalf of the entire Rambam family, in Israel and around the globe, I want to express our shock and sadness at the tragic murder of worshippers gathered for Shabbat services at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.
This horrific event is the latest act of anti-Semitic violence carried out in places across the globe, senseless and hate-filled
acts targeting Jews and all of humanity.
The entire Rambam family mourns the loss of innocent lives through sheer hatred.
In memory of the victims, and in praise of the brave first responders who prevented what could have been an even greater tragedy, we will lower our flag to half-staff this week.
We will continue to stand in solidarity with the Jewish people and with Israel – for life, security, and peace.
