KONDOLENČNÝ LIST ÚZ ŽNO FRANCÚZSKEJ ŽIDOVSKEJ KOMUNITE

Dear Mr. Cukierman,

on behalf of the jewish community of Slovakia, let me express our deepest sympathies and condolencies for those who suffered, and still are suffering, from the appalling terrorist attack of last week.

We have been following the horrible antisemitic events that took place and steadily increased over the past years  in France, and each time another coldblooded attack occurred, our thoughts and prayers were with the French jewish community. This last attack which was aimed against innocent staff and customers in a kosher supermarket in Paris, left us shocked and saddened.

We must not give in to these slaughterers and continue living our Jewish lives against all odds. Let me assure you that throughout these painful times, our hopes are with French jewry and you have our complete solidarity and support.

Sincerely
Igor Rintel
president of the  Federation of Jewish Communities of Slovakia
