The Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, ADL (Anti-Defamation League) and American Jewish Committee (AJC) issued the following joint statement regarding the hate-filled comments made at the Central Bucks School District Board Meeting on Tuesday, November 9:
We are deeply concerned by the racist, antisemitic, and anti-LGBTQ+ comments made during the Central Bucks School District school board meeting last night. Hate speech, even if protected speech, must always be called out and condemned. We urge the School Board leadership to disavow these remarks and make clear that they in no way reflect the views of Central Bucks School District. We all have a role to play in ensuring that Bucks County is free from bigotry and hate – we hope the entire community will join in this work.
