Jewish organizations, politicians and celebrities took to social media to show their support for France after the deadly attacks which rocked Paris on Friday night.

The coordinated terror strikes that took place at several locations throughout the city, including an Eagles of Death Metal concert at the Bataclan theater, took the lives of over 120 people.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted: “Israel stands with France in war against terrorism. I send condolences to the families of the murdered & wish the injured a speedy recovery.” President Reuven Rivlin also offered words of comfort.

In the United States, the ADL called the attacks “an outrageous, cowardly, premeditated assault not just on the people of France, but on all freedom loving people around the world.” The American Jewish Committee wrote: “As the City of Light confronts darkness tonight, we stand with the people of Paris & all of France!”

Other Jewish celebrities like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, girl band HAIM and Israeli model Bar Refaeli, also sent out words of love and hope for the people of the French capital.
