Statement from Senator Kaplan on Anti-Semitic Attack on North Shore Hebrew Academy

CARLE PLACE, NY (December 14, 2020) - State Senator Anna M. Kaplan (D-Great Neck) issued the following statement today following reports of an anti-Semitic incident in which the website of North Shore Hebrew Academy was hacked and taken over by neo-nazis:

Senator Anna M. Kaplan said “It's truly unthinkable that anyone could be so consumed by anti-Semitism and hatred that they would commit such a vile and repugnant crime against our community during Chanukah, but this is a horrific reminder that hatred and anti-Semitism are alive and well even in our own backyards, and we must ALL speak out in no uncertain terms that we reject it at every opportunity and in every corner of our community. The entire community stands with the students, families, and staff of the North Shore Hebrew Academy community during this difficult time, and our law enforcement has my full support to ensure this vile hate crime is prosecuted and the neo-Nazis responsible for it are brought to justice."
