FEDERATION NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
From the Desk of Suzanne Leon:
On October 9, 2016 members of Temple Beth Shalom of Florida, NY woke to find their cemetery desecrated with Nazi slogans and symbols.
On May 23rd, Eric Carbonaro, a 2017 graduate of SS Seward Institute in Florida, NY, will be sentenced in connection with this hate crime. We extend our gratitude to local and state police and the Orange County District Attorney for their hard work in bringing the perpetrator to justice.
Hate crimes intimidate members of the targeted community and encourage other destructive and cruel expressions. We invite the public to join us on May 23rd at 2PM at the Orange County Courthouse, Goshen to stand up to hate in our community.
We are grateful to the religious leaders and the many individuals of all races, religions and ethnicities who support our community and join with us in our call to reject antisemitism, racism and bigotry.
We demand zero tolerance for hate crimes!
