Village President Senta Plunkett read the following statement on behalf of the Village Board at the October 10 Village Board meeting.
We stand in solidarity with our neighboring communities in condemning the horrific terrorist attacks this past weekend in Israel. Many in our community have friends or family directly impacted by these events, and we are thinking of them and offering our support in this difficult time.
We offer our sincerest condolences to all of the innocent civilians impacted by the ongoing violence.
Wilmette is committed to fostering and promoting an inclusive community where all racial, ethnic, gender, religious, sexual orientation and cultural backgrounds feel safe and welcomed. We value our ability to welcome people of different backgrounds and faiths and stand in support of those impacted by religious persecution or violence.
