Attacks on Hasidim Condemned

Editor, The Jewish News:
The Jewish nation has
always previously exhibited
the traits of compassion,
modesty and benevolence.
We have always despised
evil traits and acts of vio-
lence. Hooliganism and
murder have always been
considered to be the worst
possible behavior. "With
your sword shall you live"
was not the blessing given
to the Jews. Quite the con-
trary, there is no greater
shame than that of a mur-
Therefore, we are shocked

and filled with anguish and
pain to hear that which has
occurred most recently be-
tween people who call
themselves Hasidim,
namely, the merciless at-
tacks against other Jews
and shaving off their be-
ards. These are acts which
are reminiscent of the Nazi
We condemn these acts of
hooliganism and appeal for
a stop to these acts of terror.
We ask the guilty to discard
their evil ways.
There are many channels
through which disagree-

ments can be reconciled.
"The ways of Torah are
pleasant and all its paths
lead to peace."
We pray that the Al-
mighty through his infinite
benevolence will bring
peace and love between all
Jews wherever they may
