Press Release

Congressman Dan Donovan (NY-11) released the following statement regarding today’s bomb threat made against the Staten Island Jewish Community Center (JCC):

“Anti-Semitism and hatred of any kind will not be tolerated in our communities. Members of the JCC and the Jewish community should know that people of all faiths stand with them in denouncing intimidation and threats. Just last week, I called for an investigation into the rise of anti-Semitic acts across the nation, which has now unfortunately affected Staten Island. The NYPD is currently investigating this incident and my office will be following updates closely."
