We mourn the death of Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, longtime friend of the interfaith Appeal of Conscience Foundation, whom we honored two months ago for his lifetime contribution to international relations.
A refugee who rose to elder statesman, he was proud to serve his Country of Freedom. His wise counsel will be sorely missed.
Our heartfelt sympathy to his beloved wife,
Nancy and his children, David and Elizabeth.
As People of Faith we must be in the forefront of countering the hate mongers in our midst who breed bias, hatred and division.
We stand together with those who respect human dignity of all of God’s children. Bound by our shared destiny to heal our wounded world, we must emerge as a united human family, seeking improvement by building peaceful co-existence and respect the other.
The Appeal of Conscience Foundation, founded by Rabbi Arthur Schneier in 1965, has worked on behalf of religious freedom and human rights throughout the world.
To uphold the principle of “live and let live” is the Appeal of Conscience Foundation’s continuing goal. An interfaith coalition of business, religious and foreign policy leaders, this international organization promotes mutual understanding, peace and interreligious cooperation and provides a voice of conscience to protect minorities.
The Foundation believes that freedom, democracy and human rights are the fundamental values that give nations of the world their best hope for peace, security and shared prosperity.
