Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh Denounces Hate Materials Distributed in Squirrel Hill Neighborhood

PITTSBURGH, PA—This weekend, hate materials were distributed in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Jeff Finkelstein, CEO of the Jewish Federation made these comments:

“These anti-Semitic and racist fliers targeted both the Jewish and African American communities. This is a prime example of how hateful people don’t only hate one group of people. The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh stands in solidarity with the African American community and all other communities who join with us as we continue to fight anti-Semitism, racism, and hate with love. To quote Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., ‘Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.’

“We are committed to the safety and security of the Greater Pittsburgh Jewish community. We have the utmost confidence in our local and national law enforcement as they investigate.”
