Press Release
December 22, 2011

Mayor Jorge Meneses and the entire City Council have expressed their outrage at the abhorrent attack at Temple Beth El, a Synagogue in Hackensack.

"Hackensack prides itself as a leader in diversity and tolerance. An attack on any ethnic or religious group is an attack on our entire city" said a statement issued by the City Officials. "We are offended and enraged that such an act would occur here" they continued. "During this season we all should be united in celebrating our individual beliefs. Instead, cowardly criminals have chosen to spread a message of hate. We will not tolerate such actions and we will exhaust every available option to bring those hate mongers who are responsible for this to justice" concluded the officials.
