The War in Israel and Gaza
Dean Levin shares a message of sadness and solidarity with the GSB community following the attack by Hamas.
I write with profound sadness over the attack by Hamas and the violence and death in Israel and Gaza, and to express solidarity with each of you whose family and friends are suffering.
My heart goes out to colleagues and classmates whose lives will be personally and irreversibly impacted by the escalating conflict. Let us be united in supporting them and each other in this moment of grief and loss.
I hope and believe that as an academic community, in the coming weeks and months, we can find ways to engage in discussion and thoughtful dialogue about these unfolding events, as befits the members of one of the world’s great institutions of learning. I know many of us will want to hear from scholars and experts who have made the region their life’s work.
I encourage those in need to reach out for help from the school or other university resources, and I encourage everyone to remember our collective responsibility to engage with each other in ways that are grounded in empathy and compassion.
