Press Release
WASHINGTON — Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), issued the following statement responding to a shooting at a Jewish market in Jersey City this week:

“The creeping rise of anti-Semitic crimes and violence throughout this country must be identified, confronted and ultimately stopped. Yesterday’s targeted shooting at a kosher grocery store and the later discovery of an operational pipe bomb serve as grave reminders that we cannot afford silence and we cannot afford complacency when it comes to combating anti-Semitic hatred. May the memory of those lost be a blessing.”
