Condemnation for desecration of Jewish graves in Denmark

Senior Vice President Sheila Gewolb has condemned the desecration of Jewish graves in Denmark.

Sheila said: “The desecration of up to 80 graves in a the 200-year old Jewish cemetery in Denmark over this past weekend, on the anniversary of Kristallnacht, is another example of the worrying and dangerous growth of antisemitism throughout Europe. We condemn these horrific acts and stand with the Danish Jewish community in this difficult time. We thank the Danish Prime Minster Mette Frederiksen for his words of support.“
