President Biden condemned antisemitism Friday, which marked five years since a gunman opened fire at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, killing 11 people in the deadliest attack on Jews in American history.
Biden noted in the statement that the anniversary of the shooting comes on the heels of the deadliest attack on the Jewish people since the Holocaust: Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel at the beginning of October. The attack killed more than 1,400 Israelis, and the group took more than 200 hostages captive.
The president echoed his pledge to work to combat acts of antisemitism.
“To the Jewish community, I stand with you,” Biden said in the statement. “We will continue to condemn antisemitism at every turn – and aggressively implement the first-ever national strategy to counter antisemitism.”
