Statement on DeSean Jackson: The anti-Semitic comments displayed by DeSean Jackson on his instagram are deeply offensive and disturbing. These words have been used for centuries to support the vilification and extermination of Jews. As a representative of our city, we call on DeSean Jackson to stop spreading hate and bigotry and to become better educated about anti-Semitism.

The Germantown Jewish Centre is considering changing its open-door policy during services.

Protocol requiring doors to stay locked during school hours may also become rule for other events. Armed off-duty police officers hired as security for the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur may find more work securing other services.
