TRENTON – Today, Stuart Meissner, candidate for U.S. Senate, made the following statement in response to the tragic attack at a Hanukkah Celebration  in Monsey, NY:

“I am shocked and disgusted to learn of the cowardly attack that occurred in Monsey, NY this weekend. My heart aches for those who gathered peacefully to celebrate Hanukkah only to be savagely attacked by a domestic terrorist. The increase in anti-Semitic incidents occurring from Jersey City to our college campuses must be addressed with greater vigilance. I want to thank President Trump and the Justice Department for pursuing this atrocity with the enhanced penalties that federal prosecution can offer. We must put an end to this horrendous scourge of anti-Semitism impacting our great country.”
