RJC Demands Democrat New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio Apologize for His Dangerous Tweet Against the Jewish Community
Washington D.C. -- Last night, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio issued a tweet targeting all of the approximately 1.1 million Jews in New York City. The tweet was apparently in response to the gathering of some 1,000 Jews (0.09% of the Jewish population) for a funeral. This comes on the heels of a dangerous uptick in anti-Semitic attacks in New York City that de Blasio failed to address. RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks issued the following statement:
At the present time, all RJC staff are following government social distancing recommendations and are teleworking. Our DC headquarters and regional staff can be reached by phone (please leave a voicemail message and your call will be returned) or by email. Contact information for our offices can be found here.
