Senator Leach Comments on Recent Threats Received by Jewish Institutions

HARRISBURG, Pa – February 27, 2017 – State Senator Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery/Delaware) today commented the vandalism and the bomb threats made against Jewish institutions across the USA.

Leach’s statement:

“As a Jew with the last name ‘Leach,’ I have always heard what many people say when they don’t know a Jew is around. But what used to be slurs and insults has turned into bomb threats, desecrated graves and babies in cribs wheeled out of daycare centers in a panic. Where does the empowerment of hate lead? Wherever it is, it can’t be good.”
