Rutgers Chabad Hosts Community Round Table With NJ Law Enforcement Leadership

Chabad House at Rutgers was the site chosen for a unique meeting that brought together many varied members and leaders of the Central New Jersey Jewish community and the leaders of law enforcement in the state. Headed by New Jersey’s Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, who opened the meeting with informative and supportive remarks, the gathering included LTC Geoffrey Noble, deputy superintendent of the New Jersey State Police; Zach Intrater, assistant U.S. attorney’s office for the district of New Jersey; Jared Maples, director of New Jersey homeland security and preparedness; Christopher L.C. Kuberiet, acting Middlesex County prosecutor; and Chief Kenneth Cop of the Rutgers University police department.

Attorney General Grewal specifically requested that questions be presented by students from Rutgers University on their personal experiences on campus. The students eagerly accepted the attorney general’s invitation and spoke of their experiences with anti-Semitism on campus. The open forum went on for many minutes and the attorney general pledged to continue to advance the need for preventative education and other measures to combat the scourge of anti-Semitism that has occurred in many parts of the state. The meeting also included Rutgers Hillel’s executive director, Andrew Gertraer, and leaders from area organizations and businesses.

Rabbi Yosef Carlebach, director of Chabad House, chaired the event and summarized this unique meeting as a tremendous beginning in addressing the long-term solution of the tragic and senseless killing in Jersey City. Rabbi Carlebach stated, “If governments in Europe in the 1930s had reacted in a correct manner, perhaps the course of history would have changed to benefit the Jewish people and all mankind.”
