Jewish organizational statements on Paris and Beirut

The Jewish community is incredibly disheartened by anti-refugee sentiment and concerned about current proposals that would end or halt refugee resettlement to the U.S. Resettling refugees is central to our American and Jewish values. Furthermore, we can welcome refugees while ensuring our own security.  Below are statements from various Jewish organizations across the country:
