Board Senior Vice President Richard Verber issued a statement on the arson attack on a church in Israel. he said: “The Board unreservedly condemns the heinous arson attack against the church in Tabgha associated by Christians with the miracle of the loaves and the fishes. Such hatred and disrespect of faith should have no place in Israel, the Holy Land to the three Abrahamic faiths. The Board welcomes the Israeli government’s pledge to apprehend the perpetrators and that they should meet the full force of the law.”
