Press Release

WHITE PLAINS, NY – Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY17/Rockland-Westchester), Ranking Member on the House Appropriations Committee, made the following statement:

“This spike in incidents of anti-Semitism is deeply troubling and does not represent the values of our great state. Anti-Semitic vandalism, threats, and violence are deplorable and unacceptable, and must be rooted out of our society, along with all other forms of bigotry and hate. Tolerant and decent Americans, including the vast majority of New Yorkers, must band together to send a message that this hate is not welcome.”
