National Coucil of Jewish Women Denounces Apparent Anti-Gay Murders in Tel Aviv

 

Washington, DC -- The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) today denounced the Saturday attack on the Tel Aviv Gay and Lesbian Association Center that resulted in two dead and fifteen wounded. NCJW President Nancy Ratzan released the following statement:

 

“The terrible attack August 1st on the Tel Aviv Gay and Lesbian Association Center is an incredible tragedy and our hearts go out to the victims and their families. The deaths of Liz Trobishi and Nir Katz -- two young people seeking only to socialize and share in a support group -- adds two more to the legions of others who may have suffered persecution just for being who they are. Throughout history everywhere the list is too numerous to know; in modern times we must remember every name.

 

“Though we do not yet know all the details of this crime, we do know that those who engage in anti-gay rhetoric must be shunned -- especially those who seek power and assert moral authority on the backs of those who are different. The straight community must stand in solidarity with those under attack.

 

“Israel has made much progress in recent years on gay rights. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's declaration that, ‘Ours is a country built on tolerance and we must respect all people as they are,’ is welcome, and should mark the beginning of redoubled effort not just to change polices, but to change minds. The government of Israel, the US, and the world-wide Jewish community must organize and mobilize around the full inclusion and emancipation of LGBT people everywhere.”

 

The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms.
