A Message from CUNY Board of Trustees Chairperson William C. Thompson Jr. and Interim Chancellor Vita C. RabinowitzOctober 29, 2018 | The University
We write today to condemn the hatred and bigotry that have gripped the country in recent days. The senseless murder of 11 Jews who were worshiping in the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh was the worst anti-Semitic attack in our nation’s history. Those slayings came only days after two African-Americans were randomly murdered while they shopped for groceries in a Louisville suburb, by a white man who had failed to gain entry to a predominantly African-American church. We were also all horrified by the discovery of explosive devices, some found near CUNY campuses, that were sent to national leaders last week.
