In response to the tragic loss of life today at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Refugee Council USA issued the following statement 

The members of RCUSA are devastated by the attack on worshippers and the tragic loss of life. We stand with the Jewish community, especially our brothers and sisters of HIAS, against anti-Semitism and hate.  Welcoming refugees and others in need is a response of love against hate, and we will continue to respond with love.
