Statement on Anti-Semitic Act at Brooklyn Synagogue

STATEMENT FROM MARC MOLINARO ON

ANTI-SEMITIC GRAFFITI AT BROOKLYN SYNAGOGUE

November 2, 2018
“Last week, in the wake of the shootings in Pittsburgh, our hearts went out to all the people who had come to the synagogue that day to pray, to reach out to God, to be together. The same thing I do with my family on Sundays. But the ramifications of that hateful act don’t stop in the neighborhood of Squirrel Hill. Sadly, fear has taken root, in synagogues, churches, mosques and places of worship in New York and around the country. It is simply unacceptable that New Yorkers have been made afraid to enter places of worship for fear of violence. Anti-Semitism and violence are a toxic brew that we must eradicate. Today’s news that a Brooklyn Synagogue has been defiled with hateful graffiti is more proof that anti-Semitism is real, it is on the rise and we must stand up to it, we will stand up to it wherever and whenever it rears its ugly head.”
