Dear Mr. Mehta,

On behalf of the entire Board of Directors of the Jewelers Vigilance Committee, we wish to express our deepest sympathies to the people of Mumbai, India at this painful time.

Our prayers go to the families and loved ones of those who were killed or hurt in the calculated terrorist attacks that started on November 26.  Our thoughts also go to those who narrowly escaped harm, including members of the international jewelry industry.

It is our ardent hope that those who are in mourning find solace and that governments around the globe can band together to fight and ultimately end terrorism.

Sincerely,

Eli Haas
Chairman of the Board of Directors
Jewelers Vigilance Committee
