RELEASE: Gottheimer Statement on Swastika Found in Glen Rock School
Today, December 15, 2022, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) released the following statement on a swastika found in North Jersey:
“As our nation continues to experience a spike in antisemitic attacks and hate, I am disgusted and deeply concerned, once again, to receive updates of a swastika being found at the Glen Rock Middle School. This symbol of hate cannot and will not be tolerated in North Jersey — especially within our schools which should be teaching that our diversity is one of our greatest strengths.
I have received updates from the Glen Rock Mayor and the Glen Rock Middle School Superintendent on the issue and will continue to be in touch with them to ensure appropriate measures are taken, including a strong focus on Holocaust education.
We must continue to call out antisemitism and all forms of hate and intolerance.”
