In Solidarity with Jewish Friends

By Deacon Steve Herrera, Acting Chair of the Board, Silicon Valley Interreligious Council (SiVIC):

According to reports by the Jewish News of California, recently “a [South Bay] minister…. condemned Zionists and invoked false conspiracy theories about Israelis assisting in the murder of George Floyd, and about Gaza serving as a test site for U.S. weapons through Israel’s military. The minister warned his congregation and the preschool parent attendees against viewing the “Jews of the Bible” and the “Jews of today” as the same people, arguing that today’s Jews have no legitimate claim to Israel as a homeland. “The Silicon Valley Interreligious Council (SiVIC) refutes this point of view by a faith leader as out of sync with our values and damaging to our beloved/valued/cherished Jewish community members and our interfaith family of communities.”

Stop Hate & Vandalization of Places of Worship

“In unity and solidarity, the Silicon Valley Interreligious Council (SiVIC) vehemently denounces the reprehensible acts of hate and violence targeting local Hindu temples. The sacred spaces that represent diverse beliefs and practices should be sanctuaries of peace and harmony. We condemn any form of discrimination, bigotry, or harm inflicted upon individuals or communities due to their religious affiliations. We include both Jewish Synagogues and Sikh Gurudwara (temples) which were vandalized earlier. In this shared journey of understanding and respect, we call upon all people of faith and goodwill to join hands in fostering compassion, dialogue, and empathy. Together, let us strive to create a world where religious diversity is celebrated, and the sanctity of every faith-based institution is preserved, ensuring that they remain beacons of love, understanding, and coexistence.”
