Press Release

Today, Rep. Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement after news that a gunman attacked the Chabad of Poway synagogue late this morning:

“Earlier today, the Poway and San Diego community tragically learned that a gunman attacked the Chabad of Poway synagogue, on this, the last day of Passover, a day that is supposed to be a celebration of faith and freedom. I am thinking of, and praying for, the victim who has passed away, those hurt, and the community deeply affected.

“While we mourn this devastation, I am grateful for the swift action of local law enforcement and medical personnel.

“Today also marks six months to the day of the tragedy at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Enough. Enough hate. Enough gun violence. I stand with all Jewish Americans today, especially those in Poway and San Diego.”
