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.

Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware had fewer anti-Semitic incidents in 2018 compared with 2017, according to a new audit from the Anti-Defamation League.

Released Tuesday — days after a deadly shooting inside a synagogue outside San Diego and a day before Holocaust Remembrance Day — the report is encouraging, but nothing to celebrate, said ADL regional director Nancy Baron-Baer.
