Press Release
WASHINGTON - Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement responding to recent acts of anti-Semitism.

"Yesterday’s shocking attack inside a rabbi’s home on the seventh night of Hanukkah is heartbreaking and enraging.

"This follows a week of anti-Semitic acts and attacks on the Jewish community in New York, which have included physical intimidation, physical abuse and public harassment.

"Those that perpetrate these acts of hatred must be found, confronted and brought to immediate justice. Those who devise, promote and spread these ideologies must be stopped as well. This is not just a task for New York law enforcement or the New York community. This is a task for all of us. These attacks are on the rise throughout the country.

"My thoughts are with the Jewish community during this difficult time, as we come together as one to rebuke this hatred, completely and fully."
