CFR Denounces the Rise in Antisemitism in New York and Across the United States

Thursday, November 10, 2022 – The Center for Family Representation (CFR) is deeply troubled by the rise in antisemitism in New York and across the United States. In 2021, New York State saw over 400 reports of hatred toward Jewish people, including physical attacks, antisemitic graffiti on Jewish-owned businesses, and attempts to desecrate synagogues. Antisemitic incidents also reached a record high nationwide, with over 2,700 acts of hatred reported.  

Over the past month, the American Jewish community has been subject to a number of high-profile antisemitic incidents:

Attacks on the Jewish community are not new, and history has shown us that hate speech and vile political rhetoric threatens the wellbeing and safety of Jewish communities and individuals. CFR stands with our Jewish staff, clients, and supporters against all acts of antisemitism. We recommit ourselves to speaking out against incidents of hatred and working to create spaces where Jewish people and people of all faith traditions feel a sense of respect and belonging.
