Rep. Waters Statement on the Attack on the Jewish Community in Monsey, NY & the Rise in Extremist Violence

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) issued a statement on the violent attack on the Jewish community in Monsey, New York on the seventh day of Hanukkah, and the disturbing rise in extremist violence across the country:

“I’m saddened and pained by the anti-Semitic attack on the Jewish community in Monsey, New York on the seventh day of Hanukkah, a sacred period of rededication, joy, and light. The recent violent attacks in New York and New Jersey, and the escalating extremist violence targeting places of worship and religious communities across the country must be stopped. I extend my sincere condolences to the victims and their families. Our resolve as a country must be to stand together in unity and tolerance during such a difficult time.”
