Note: This statement is presented by the WSJHS in October 2023

The Washington State Jewish Historical Society stands in solidarity with Israel. We are horrified by the surprise attack carried out by terrorist group Hamas, which has resulted in mass murder, rape, kidnapping, and other crimes against humanity directed at Jewish and Israeli people, with many others caught in the crossfire.

History has taught us that silence toward acts of violence such as this is detrimental to global peace. We must loudly and intentionally speak out against these acts in order to cultivate a better world.

We grieve the loss of life, wish for quick recoveries for the injured, and for the safe return of the missing.
