Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas

We were horrified to learn of another attack against Jews--this time in Monsey, New York--during a Hanukkah celebration. Our hearts and prayers go out to the injured and those immediately affected.

This is the latest in a growing number of anti-Semitic crimes that have swept the region—including one at a Kosher supermarket in New Jersey.

In a home, at a supermarket, while praying in synagogue. It is simply incomprehensible. Addressing this issue must be the highest priority of the responsible government officials and communal organizations.

Our national system’s Secure Community Network "has been in touch with relevant partners and will continue to monitor and update."

[12/24/19]   To all our friends who celebrate - Wishing you a Merry Christmas!🎄

[12/22/19]   Happy Hanukkah to all those celebrating! ✡️
