Gottheimer helps lead House passage of bipartisan legislation condemning the rise in antisemitism

WASHINGTON, D.C. — This week, during Jewish American Heritage Month, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer helped lead a bipartisan resolution to condemn rising antisemitism, which just passed the House of Representatives. H.Res.1125, cosponsored by Gottheimer, passed the House 420 to 1.

According to the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) annual audit, the overall number of antisemitic incidents in New Jersey rose by 25% last year — the most ever recorded in New Jersey by the ADL since tracking began.

“We must combat antisemitism wherever it exists. Those who allow these ideas to fester and to go unchecked only enable them to be further embraced,” said Gottheimer, during Jewish American Heritage Month. “We must take concerted efforts at every level of government to stop this drastic rise in antisemitism in New Jersey and across the country. With sweeping bipartisan support, the House has strongly condemned antisemitism and recognized the many contributions Jewish Americans have made to our great nation.”
