US Rep. Dan Goldman and his family were in in Tel Aviv when Hamas attacked Israel yesterday and were forced to shelter in a hotel stairwell until this morning, when they could safely leave the country, according to his office.

The New York Democrat’s office releases a short statement saying Goldman, his wife, and their three youngest children were in Israel for a bar mitzvah at the time of the attack.

“Congressman Goldman is grateful for the assistance of the State Department and Israeli authorities, and he hopes all Americans can come together to support Israel’s right to defend herself from terrorism and war crimes,” the statement reads.
