Statement from Vanderbilt Hillel

Hillel joins with the rest of the Vanderbilt community in mourning the tragic death of Taylor Force, a Vanderbilt student in the Owen Graduate School for Management, who was tragically murdered during a terrorist attack in Tel Aviv-Jaffa. We send our deepest condolences to Taylor’s family and friends.

Taylor was participating in a Spring Break trip to Israel through the Owen School, one designed to give Vanderbilt students the opportunity to explore the country’s impressive business and entrepreneurial opportunities. We are heartbroken that this experience ended with such a horrific act, and the entire Hillel community grieves for all the victims of this senseless and deplorable violence.

May Taylor’s memory be a blessing, and may the Almighty send comfort to his family, friends, and all mourners.
