Statement from ADL CEO and National Director Jonathan Greenblatt Regarding Threats to Jewish Communities in Texas

New York, NY, July 9, 2022 … ADL CEO and National Director Jonathan Greenblatt issued the following statement regarding threats to Jewish communities in Texas:

“ADL, working closely with the San Antonio Jewish Federation, which is responsible for its community's security, continues to monitor a threat to Jewish communities in Texas. 

ADL has been in close contact with federal, state, and local law enforcement in Texas for more than 72 hours around a series of threats targeting a Texas synagogue. In the past 24 hours, we received notice of a more specific and credible threat. We will continue to closely monitor and share relevant updates with all our Jewish communal partners.

In this heightened threat environment and in the wake of the horrific act of domestic terror in Highland Park, IL we urge all communities to maintain a heightened sense of awareness and immediately report any suspicious activity to law enforcement. We are grateful to the FBI, state and local law enforcement for their proactive work investigating these potential threats.”
