Contact: [email protected]

The International Society for Sephardic Progress through its media conduit the World Sephardi News Service (WSNS) is collecting email condolences from the general public to be delivered to the Office of the Hahambashi (Chief Rabbi) of Turkey.

Condolences have been coming in since the horrendous double suicide attack on the Istanbul synagogues. Well wishes, sincere words of caring, heartfelt emotion and written tears have served to bridge the distance from fellow Jews throughout Israel and the Diaspora.

Those wanting to send their well wishes and condolences to the Turkish Jewish community may do so to [email protected]. This is an official project of the WSNS and all messages will be printed collected and forwarded to the Chief Rabbi's office in Istanbul.

May the memory of those who were lost be blessed. Baruch Dayan HaEmet, Hashem Yikom Damo.
