The Federation of New Hampshire is proud to stand with the community against all voices of hate whether spoken, shared on social media or incidents of antisemitism. We will not be silent to these discraceful acts. Recently, we released a statement condemning Representative Dawn Johnson for her insensitve act of sharing an antisemitic cartoon. This can not and should not be tolerated by anyone let alone an elected official. And unfortunately, a few days later, we were informed that the Menorah on the Dartmouth campus was vandalized. These atrocious acts of hate and antisemitsm are unacceptable.
Statement from the Jewish Federation of New Hampshire in response to the Dartmouth campus Menorah incident
In a time when the world needs light, and during a holiday that celebrates the dispelling of darkness, we are deeply disturbed and to hear of the recent vandalism of the Chabad menorah at Dartmouth College. It appears that bullets from a pellet gun broke seven out of the nine lights on the campus menorah. We join with Rabbi Moshe Grey and Dartmouth College President Phillip J. Hanlon in their forceful statements, reproduced below, against this antisemitic and hateful act. Racial, ethnic, and religious intolerance have no place in a democratic society.
As the Jewish Federation of New Hampshire continues its partnership with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on issues related to antisemitism and looks for other ways to combat this growing problem, we urge people to join with us on this effort and to continue to report any antisemitic incidents to us as soon as practicable.
