US Democratic Senators Kamala D. Harris and Dianne Feinstein introduced a resolution on Wednesday condemning the recent antisemitic attack on worshipers at the Chabad of Poway, in California.

The resolution honors the memory of Lori Gilbert Kaye, who was killed in the attack.“As we honor those who were killed and injured in the horrific shooting at the Chabad of Poway, we must also be absolutely clear about the fact that antisemitism is real in this country - and we must continue to speak out against it wherever it occurs,” said Harris. “The rising threat of white nationalism and white supremacy is in direct contradiction with the highest ideals of our country, and I urge my colleagues to join me in supporting this resolution to condemn this despicable hate.”

“Hate has no place in our country. Our resolution condemns the anti-Semitic attack on Congregation Chabad and reaffirms our nation’s values of openness and tolerance so all Americans can worship freely without fear of violence,” said Feinstein.
