Statement By Chabad Lubavitch World Headquarters On Thwarted Attack In Greece

We are grateful to local authorities in Greece who thwarted a recent terror attack aimed at various Jewish targets in the country, among them Chabad of Athens. Rabbi Mendel Hendel, Chabad representative in Athens, has confirmed that Passover plans are continuing in Greece as usual with additional security precautions in place and in tandem with local authorities.

“We are as well grateful to law-enforcement authorities who work with the Jewish leadership in hundreds of cities around the world to ensure the safety of their communities all year-round,” said Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky at Chabad-Lubavitch World Headquarters.

“Events like these should strengthen our resolve to stand strong in our Jewish identity. I urge Jews everywhere to celebrate our heritage, and enhance their Passover celebrations with pride and joy. 

“Passover marks our exodus from enslavement and the beginning of our phenomenal and miraculous peoplehood. Let us all experience the richness and meaning of this historic tradition. Chabad-Lubavitch wishes Jewish people everywhere a redemptive, healing and joyous Passover. May this Festival of Freedom bring blessings of peace and unity to all of Am Yisrael, and to the world at large.

    The Traditional Orthodox Community goes back further than Ultra-Orthodox. When a Jew is in trouble he should not turn to Chabad, but to Torah! Each Nation unto itself!
