Update on Terror Attack in Turkey

According to Haartez, the death toll from this morning's tragic terror attck is now 23 with over 300 injured. Those injured and killed were both Jewish and Muslim, friends and neighbors.

May all their memories be for a blessing and may their families find couage and hope. I pray that those who are injured have speedy recoveries.
