Press Release

Rep. Jeffries released the following statement in reaction to the stabbing at the Chabad-Lubavitch Synagogue today:

“My thoughts and prayers are with Levi Rosenblatt, his family and friends as he recovers from a senseless and hateful attack.  The Jewish community is an important part of the fabric of Crown Heights, where I grew up, and we should all stand with them in the aftermath of this criminal act.  Hate crimes have no place in Brooklyn or our diverse nation.  We must come together to end anti-Semitism and all other forms of intolerance in this City and beyond."
