Daley: Graffiti incident does not reflect values of Wynnewood

MERION STATION, April 1 – State Rep. Mary Jo Daley, D-Montgomery, today released the following statement regarding antisemitic graffiti at Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El.

“We stand with the Jewish community. Hate has no home here. It is deeply troubling that some still stoke hate, division, and fear in our own backyard. But I am confident that acts like the one we saw over the weekend are feeble in the face of a united community. The memories of these affronts are overcome by the knowledge that when someone commits an act of harm against a community, the community carries on in the face of adversity.

“We hope that police find the perpetrator and that justice can be carried out. And finally, we know that this act in no way accurately reflects the community we know and love.”
