Words of Support From Shaykh Abdallah Bin Bayyah

Last Saturday’s horrific, anti-Semitic attack on worshipers at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Congregation has brought an outpouring of international support for the American Jewish community.

One such letter to America’s Jewish leadership came from Shaykh Abdallah Bin Bayyah in the United Arab Emirates. The sheikh, President of the Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies, is an Islamic scholar who is world renowned for his work to stop the proliferation of extremism and violence in the name of Islam.

Last year, Rabbi Lustig co-chaired Shaykh Bin Bayyah’s American Caravan of Peace in the United Arab Emirates; and in February, we were honored to welcome the sheikh to Washington Hebrew Congregation, where spoke for the first time at a Jewish house of worship at our “Shabbat of Peace.” Today, we are pleased to share his letter with you.
