North Shore Chamber Statement on Hamas Attacks on Israel

Date: October 12, 2023


The North Shore Chamber of Commerce stands in solidarity with the people of Israel and strongly condemns the abhorrent acts of terrorism committed by Hamas.

We are deeply saddened and fiercely angered by the terrorists’ cowardly and brutal murders and continued atrocities against innocent civilians, including American citizens. We grieve the senseless loss of life, condemn all acts of antisemitism, and urge support for the Jewish people living in Israel, Massachusetts, our country, and the world.

We, as members of the North Shore business community, call for the Massachusetts members of Congress to take a lead role in a bipartisan congressional resolution to stand resolutely with Israel and condemn Hamas. We also urge the Massachusetts Legislature to do the same.
