The students, faculty and staff of Touro College Israel are currently facing difficult times.  Many are exposed to daily rocket attacks clearly directed against a civilian population. The Touro College and University System stands firmly behind the State of Israel as it defends its people from terror attacks and the constant barrage of rocket fire perpetrated by Hamas, a terrorist organization bent on Israel’s destruction. We applaud the Israeli army’s unprecedented measures, taken at its own risk, to minimize civilian casualties. We send our deepest condolences to the families of the soldiers and others who have died in this conflict and wish a speedy recovery to all those who have been wounded. We pray for a swift resolution of the conflict in a way that will enable our students and faculty, as well as  all those in the region, to live in peace and security.
