Around the world, bigotry, anti-Semitism and hate crimes are on the rise. Just last year, we witnessed two tragic attacks close to home. On Election Day, it is critical that we elect leaders who will actively push back against hate of all kinds—candidates like Josh Gottheimer. Since being elected to Congress in 2016, Josh Gottheimer has been a strong voice against discrimination of all forms. In November, we must send him back to Congress.
In New Jersey, Josh works tirelessly to protect our synagogues and places of worship from terror attacks. Just this year, he helped claw back more than $1.5 million in federal security grants, helping eight synagogues across the 5th District. In Washington, Josh has been laser-focused on cracking down on the homegrown and ISIS-inspired terrorists threatening all Americans. He is working to freeze terrorist funds online, to get them removed from social media platforms, and to end the Palestinian Authority’s “martyr payments.” Josh has also been a powerful voice for Israel in Congress, ensuring that the special relationship between the United States and Israel doesn’t just become another partisan issue.
Josh Gottheimer fights for us. In November, we get the chance to do the same for him.Mark/Mendy J.Schwartz
