[ARCHIVED] Town Board approves resolution condemning Anti Semitism

Board directs police department to issue an annual report on Anti Semitic acts within jurisdiction

The Greenburgh Town Board unanimously approved a resolution on Tuesday night condemning Anti Semitism. The resolution expresses our view that there is “no justification for the hatred and rhetoric  that deny Israel’s right to exist” and also points out that Holocaust denial and distortion propaganda which advances the belief that the Holocaust did not take place or minimizes the extent of the extermination of the Jews  must  be repudiated.  The resolution highlights examples of Anti Semitism in  Greenburgh, the region and around the world and directs the Greenburgh Police to provide the Town Board with an annual report on anti-Semitic Acts within its jurisdiction.

The resolution can be read by clicking on to the link below.  Special thanks to Councilman Ken Jones, Francis Sheehan, Councilwoman Ellen Hendrickx and Gina Jackson for their vote against hate, bigotry and Anti Semitism. This is just one action step that the Town Board is taking –we will continue to speak out against hate crimes against all.
