NEW YORK – In response to the terror attack in Orlando over the weekend, which left at least 49 killed and 53 wounded, American Jewish Congress (AJCongress) President Jack Rosen issued the following statement:

“This heinous act of terror, which indiscriminately targeted members of Florida’s LGBT community during Pride Month, is one of the most senseless, barbaric and horrifying tragedies our country has witnessed in modern times. We condemn this attack in the strongest possible terms and send our deepest condolences to the families affected. As we mourn the innocent victims, our thoughts and prayers will remain with Orlando. We can not afford to give in to terror, fear and hate. We must remain united through the common bonds of freedom we all share as Americans, no matter our religion, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation.”
