WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. — Today, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) addressed rising anti-Semitism in America at Temple Emanuel of the Pascack Valley.

“There can only be one opinion when it comes to anti-Semitism. Zero tolerance. We must not and we cannot allow bias, hatred, and intolerance, including anti-Semitism, to become acceptable in this country, no matter where it comes from,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer. “I will continue to be a very clear and strong voice for Israel. But we have an important responsibility to hold all of our leaders, including all presidential candidates, accountable for their positions on this critical issue.”
