HARRISBURG — Today, Attorney General Josh Shapiro released the following statement in response to threats and vandalism against Jewish community centers and institutions throughout Pennsylvania.
“Pennsylvania was struck today by multiple anonymous acts of hate. Within minutes my Office reached local, state, and federal law-enforcement officials to offer the full support of the Attorney General’s office and to assist in a thorough investigation. These acts are cowardly. Their perpetrators aim to spread fear, but we will stand together to ensure they fail. Intimidation and threats against the people of any one faith are an affront to us all.”
