On behalf of the Jewish community and the greater Orange County community, we want to express our deepest disappointment regarding yesterday’s incident of anti-Semitic graffiti at the Warwick Skatepark.
A Skatepark, like all public parks, is a place to promote community unity, form friendships and create memories. There is no room for symbols of hatred at a place like this, or anywhere in Orange County. It is the responsibility of every Orange County community member to help educate our youth to make them aware of the dangers and effects of anti-Semitism historically and presently. We also need to infuse a love for our County and the environment, emphasizing that public property must be respected and honored.
We are here to discuss community concerns and ideas for the future of our county, to keep it a safe and thriving community, in which respect and unity for one another is our goal.
