Gottheimer hosts North Jersey screening of October 7 atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists

TEANECK, NJ (Bergen County) — U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer on Sunday night, in coordination with Englewood Mayor Michael Wildes, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey, hosted a screening of the October 7 atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists.

“Video of the October 7 atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists is difficult to watch, but we can’t look away. Less than one day after the unprecedented attack from Iran on our key democratic ally, Israel, it’s more important than ever that we remember Hamas terrorists brutally murdered, raped, burned alive, and beheaded, men, women, children, and the elderly — including Americans. Hamas has held Americans, including my constituent, Edan Alexander of Tenafly,  hostage for more than six months,” Gottheimer said. “I’ll never be able to unsee this video. It reminds us of the profound evil that we’re up against and reaffirms the urgency of our mission: bring the hostages home, crush the terrorists, and deliver humanitarian aid to civilians.”

Gottheimer was joined by Englewood Mayor Michael Wildes, Former Acting Consul General Israel Nitzan, Michael Cohen, Eastern Director for the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Alana Burman for the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey, and local elected officials.
