Statement from the Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of Arlington, on Anti-Semitic Vandalism in Fairfax


April 11, 2017


ARLINGTON, Va.  - I am deeply saddened by the actions of those who painted anti-Semitic graffiti today at the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia and the Little River United Church of Christ in Fairfax. May all people of good will join me in praying for an end to all such hateful acts.  As our Jewish brothers and sisters participate in the holy days of Passover, and as Christians celebrate Holy Week, we pray for the unity of all God's people and for peace throughout our world.
