The Executive and staff of the Zionist Federation of Australia are deeply affected by the tragic events in Mount Meron.
ZFA President Jeremy Leibler said, “This news is simply terrible. Our hearts go out to the dozens of family who will spend this Shabbat in deepest mourning. May the Almighty comfort them among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.”
“Israel and the Diaspora are an extended family, and we are all hurting today”, concluded Mr Leibler.
The ZFA also paid tribute to the quick and professional response of Israel’s emergency services, who quickly gathered from across the country.
