THE JEWISH FEDERATIONS OF NORTH AMERICA
PRAISE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS FOR ARREST 

 
Israeli police announced Thursday that they had arrested an 18-year-old man with dual Israel-U.S. citizenship as the primary suspect for the majority of bomb threats that have been called into Jewish Community Centers and other Jewish institutions in 40 U.S. states and 4 Canadian provinces.

Jerry Silverman, President and CEO of The Jewish Federations of North America, released the following statement, praising law enforcement and expressing relief that an arrest has been made.

“Ten days ago, and again this morning, Jewish leaders were briefed by top officials from the FBI. From those briefings we learned about the unprecedented level of time and resources that were committed to this investigation along with high levels of cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security and a long list of partners, including Israeli law enforcement. It was heartbreaking to learn that a Jewish man is a prime suspect.

Our ability to adapt quickly and liaise with law enforcement officials was in large part due to the work of the Secure Community Network. As a community and a society we must remain vigilant in our effort to counter anti-Semitism and other hate crimes as they appear. We are fortunate to know we have partners in law enforcement who will do whatever it takes to bring these perpetrators to justice.”    





The Jewish Council for Public Affairs
 strongly condemns the atrocities currently underway in Syria, including the most recent executions of innocent civilians in Aleppo. JCPA calls on the Assad regime, as well as Russia and Iran, to put an end to the violence and seek a peaceful resolution to the conflict. 

“Today, we are left heartbroken and grieving at the senseless destruction currently underway in Aleppo,” said JCPA President and CEO, David Bernstein. “It is truly tragic that in this day and age, the international community has not figured out a way to prevent the mass slaughter of vulnerable populations. The images of children fleeing for their lives and of desperate posts on social media is a sobering reminder of the horror happening in Syria every day,” he added. “Never again means never again for everybody.”
