NE Philly synagogue has been vandalized for the 3rd time. The perpetrator has been caught but will likely get away with a slap on the wrist unless we act.

There has been 1,266 attacks on Jews in the United States in 2016 alone. The job of the Government is first and foremost to protect its Citizens. We need to let our elected officials know that an attack on our places of worship is an attack on us all. We have been under attack for most of our history and we know a hate crime when we see it. Bring the perpetrator to justice to show the World that the Jews of Philadelphia are not easy target. Otherwise we will continue to be targets and the number of these incidents will only increase.

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."
