JCRC/AJC Statement Regarding Shooting in Jersey City

December 11, 2019 – The tragic story in Jersey City is still unfolding, but it seems clear that a Jewish kosher store was targeted, and a police officer and Jews were killed. JCRC/AJC has been in touch with the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit to make sure that all security measures are taken to protect our own community and our own local kosher stores. There is no indication at all that there are threats to the Detroit Jewish community at this time, but we take this act of wanton murder, hatred and antisemitism as a warning for all Jews and Americans everywhere to be vigilant and to look out for each other.
