The Union for Reform Judaism says it is monitoring the situation at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, TX and praying for the safety of [Congregation Beth Israel] Rabbi Charlie Cytron-Walker and congregants.

“We are in touch with community leaders, and we deeply appreciate the outpouring of love and support. We are also very grateful to law enforcement who are working to free the hostages,” the URJ adds.
