Linden, NJ – Jewish residents of Linden, NJ, have complained to local police that they have received hate mail over the past few weeks, which has become a concern for the Jewish community which has been growing in the city.
“We received letters which say things like ‘We’re not done yet. Hitler was right!’ and other hateful messages, and it is of great concern to the community,” a resident who requested anonymity told Hamodia. “Several such letters were delivered to addresses of Jewish families. Some have contacted the local police, but the response has been sort of weak. It has many of us worried.”
Over the past few years, the city of Linden has seen an influx of Jewish residents who have purchased homes in the neighborhood and constructed infrastructure for the Jewish community. The recent hateful letters has alerted the Jewish residents that there is antisemitic opposition to their settling there, and they are hoping that local officials will take the threats seriously and work on uprooting any animosity towards them.
