Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected, especially the Paris-based family from our community, who were horrifically struck in Barcelona, whilst visiting there on holiday.
The World Federation and CoEJ, along with community leaders, are in touch with the family that were sadly affected by this incident and are assisting to accommodate their needs.

Let's pray that humanity can unite against all forms of terrorism and that there are peaceful times ahead.
