Dear Rabbi Seth Klayman and Congregation Sha’arei Shalom;

Our hearts hurt for the hate and attempted violence your synagogue experienced recently. Thank you for your example of commitment to your faith and your good works in the wider community. We grieve that you were the targeted because of your religious beliefs.

Raleigh Friends Meeting,(Quakers), have a long tradition of advocating for a world without violence, a world that respects our differences, and a world that cares and supports those who are in need and suffering. When the rights and security of any people are infringed upon, we stand in unity with them.

You are our brothers and sisters. We offer our love and support and are holding you in the Light. If there is a planned response we would like to participate in whatever way you feel appropriate.

With love and respect,

Jan Schmidt and Bill Moore, co-clerks

On behalf of the Members of RFM
