Statement from President Beilock: “I stand with you at this vigil in condemning the horrific, terrorist slaughter by Hamas of hundreds of Israeli civilians – including old people and little children – as well as citizens of other countries, including the United States. We are gathered together on the Green to express our horror, to mourn, and to affirm the sanctity of human life..” (Chabad/Hillel/UVJC Vigil in Solidarity with Israel, October 12)
