New York, NY, July 9, 2022 … ADL CEO and National Director Jonathan Greenblatt issued the following statement following the apprehension of a suspect in the threat to Jewish communities in Texas:
“ADL is thankful to federal, state and local law enforcement for taking this threat to Texas Jewish communities seriously and working diligently to identify and apprehend the suspect. We also wish to thank our partners at the San Antonio Jewish Federation and Secure Community Network for their continued collaboration in the face of threats to local Jewish communities.
With the immediate threat brought to a resolution, ADL will continue to be in contact with law enforcement, as we have been over the past few days, monitoring the situation. As we have previously said, in this heightened threat environment we urge all communities to maintain vigilance and immediately report any suspicious activity to law enforcement.
Once again, we thank the FBI, state and local law enforcement for their proactive work investigating and mitigating these threats.”
