Governor Wolf Statement on Acts and Threats Against Jewish Institutions in Pennsylvania

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement in reaction to a series of threats and direct acts against Jewish institutions in Pennsylvania that follow a national trend of increased anti-Semitism:

“Any anti-Semitic act or act of intimidation aimed at Jewish institutions and people in Pennsylvania is truly reprehensible and we must find those responsible and hold them accountable. This is not who we are as Americans or Pennsylvanians. We will not take these threats and acts lightly and I have asked the Pennsylvania State Police and Office of Homeland Security to offer their full resources towards protecting these institutions and finding those responsible.”

Recent incidents include bomb threats called into Jewish Community Centers and vandalism at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia.
