B’nai B’rith International extends its condolences to the victims, families and entire Jewish community in the Kansas City area after a deadly shooting at the JCC of Greater Kansas City and the Village Shalom assisted living center.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time there has been a shooting at a Jewish Community Center. Comments attributed to the shooter after police had him in custody demonstrate a blind hatred toward Jews.
We hope the investigation is both thorough and expeditious.
We will continue to monitor the situation as details about the circumstances of the shootings become known.
