JCRC Condemns Anti-Semitic Remarks at High School Sporting Event

Taunting cheers at a high school basketball game took a very dark and troubling turn on Friday night when students from Catholic Memorial High School chanted “You killed Jesus!” at their game against Newton North High School on Friday night.

 

We join with our colleagues at AJC and ADL in both rejecting hatred and expressing our disdain of such anti-Semitic sentiments and also in our appreciation for the leadership of Newton North and Catholic Memorial High Schools responding with swift and decisive action. We are also grateful to Cardinal Sean O’Malley for sending a clear message to our community that Anti-Semitism in any form is unacceptable.
