This past weekend, an attack of unprecedented violence was committed against Israel that claimed the lives of hundreds of civilians in that region. Our university community is heartbroken by this devastating terrorist attack and the resonating impact it may have on our neighbors in Lakewood—a thriving Jewish community—and our students, employees, alumni, and other community members.
One of the Sisters of Mercy’s critical concerns, nonviolence, emphasizes the importance of working for peace through prayer, education, and personal and communal practices of nonviolence and advocacy. We are committed to ensuring this concern is incorporated into everything we do in the weeks and months to come.
The pain and suffering that so many are feeling today will not go away overnight. As a community, we will continue to pray for all victims of violence and their families, and offer hope for safety and peace throughout this region.
Our Counseling Center staff are available to assist any students who need support during this time. Please call (732) 987-2680 or email email@example.com to schedule an appointment.
