Reps. Kustoff, Budd, and Zeldin Introduce Resolution to Reduce Anti-Semitism
WASHINGTON, DC— Today, U.S. Representatives David Kustoff (R-TN), Ted Budd (R-NC) and Lee Zeldin (R-NY) introduced H. Res. 782. The resolution encourages public schools throughout the country to design and teach a curriculum about the history of anti-Semitism and the Holocaust, and the historic importance of the creation of the Jewish State of Israel in 1948. It also calls on law enforcement officials on every level to hold the perpetrators of anti-Semitic attacks accountable and bring them to justice.
“Anti-Semitism is on the rise, and the memory of the Holocaust is fading fast for too many Americans. Over the holiday season, the Jewish community experienced this hatred almost every day, especially as a Hanukkah celebration was cut short due to a vile, anti-Semitic attack. To help combat this, we must continue to teach the lessons of the Holocaust to the younger generations, explain the importance of Israel to the Jewish people, and hold those who commit these attacks accountable,” said. Rep. Kustoff. “This resolution calls on our law enforcement to bring the perpetrators of these attacks to justice and encourages public schools to teach their students about the history of anti-Semitism and the Holocaust, equipping them with a full understanding of the consequences of this hate. I am proud to have introduced this important legislation with my colleagues, Rep. Budd and Rep. Zeldin.”
