The Most Reverend Lionel Gendron, P.S.S., Bishop of Saint-Jean-Longueuil and President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, along with members of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops-Canadian Rabbinic Caucus dialogue, wrote a letter to the Chairs of the Caucus offering condolences and support in response to the recent violence in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on 27 October 2018.

"This act of unspeakable violence during the Sabbath is a terrible and clear manifestation of anti-Semitism, a scourge which most regrettably persists in our world today and is of great concern to the Jewish community, the Catholic Church and society as a whole."
