We Must Stand Against Hatred in All Its Forms

Today, ADL's national headquarters and another Jewish school/JCC received bomb threats. The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle is horrified and outraged by the dozens of bomb threats called in to Jewish community centers and organizations, including today’s threats. From the desecration of the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery in St. Louis, to defacement of synagogues, to the neo-Nazi recruitment poster seen on the University of Washington campus last week, all of these recent outbreaks of anti-Semitism remind us that we must remain watchful, be vigilant, and never, ever accept hate and bigotry as the “new normal.” Let us also remember that acts of hatred against any community are acts of hatred against all communities, and resolve to stand together to fight hatred in all its forms.
