Please see the attached response of the Jewish Community Relations Council to the Massachusetts church leaders joint statement.

"The senseless killing of people in any place must always be denounced, but that these brutal attacks in the synagogue in Jerusalem should have occurred against innocent, unarmed worshippers deserves only the strongest possible condemnation. Our prayers go out to those who were wounded and are fighting for their lives and to all those devastated by this attack, especially the families of those who were murdered today. In a particular way, we are conscious of the death of one of our neighbors from Boston, a member of a distinguished Jewish family, Rabbi Moshe Twersky."

In a letter to the Parish Council of the Cathedral dated November 10, 2014, His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios wrote, "Taking into consideration the pastoral needs of the Metropolis of Boston, I appoint the Rev. Dr. Demetrios Tonias as Dean of the Cathedral. Fr. Demetri has served our Metropolis in several communities with distinction, zeal and honor. He is greatly loved in the parish he is currently serving in Watertown. I am grateful to him for accepting my appointment to the Cathedral in order to begin a new chapter in its history. I have asked him to particularly reach out to the greater ecumenical and interchurch community and to college students studying in greater Boston. I pray that his tenure at the Cathedral be marked with much success." Fr. Tonias will begin his new ministry as Dean of the Cathedral on December 1, 2014, after having served as the Proistamenos of the Taxiarchae Parish of Watertown since September of 2008. Prior to Watertown, he served the Holy Trinity parish of Concord, New Hampshire.
