Hillel President Wayne L. Firestone issued the following statement:
"Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life extends its sympathy to Israelis of all backgrounds and beliefs who were targeted by a terrorist bombing in Jerusalem and rocket fire in southern Israel. These indiscriminate attacks on civilian population centers are anathema to those who believe in tolerance, civil society and peace.
"Hillel will continue to work in Israel, North America, the former Soviet Union and Latin America to educate college students and young adults on campuses and in communities about Israel, its right to self-defense, and its continuing quest for peace. We will continue to oppose violence and hatred by modeling civility and dialogue in our work."
