We are horrified by the numerous antisemitic assaults that have taken place in the New York City area over the past week and strongly condemn them for what they are — hate crimes.
America is a place of hope and tolerance. Historically, Jews came here seeking religious freedom and a place to live their lives in peace. These attacks were directed specifically against Jews where they live, in their neighborhoods and places of worship, and singled out Jews from the ages of 6 to 65.
This behavior, steeped in hatred, does not represent the America we all know and love. We stand with American Jews who have been shaken by these 9 attacks and the growth of violent antisemitism, more generally.
The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum remains steadfast in our mission to teach the history of the Holocaust and advance human rights to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference.
Our work has never been more important than it is today. To learn more visit www.dhhrm.org.
