MONROE – Rabbi Pesach and Chana Burston of Chabad of Orange County, Tuesday, expressed “our deepest disappointment” regarding anti-Semitic graffiti found at the Warwick skatepark.
“A skatepark, like all public parks, is a place to promote community unity, form friendships and create memories,” the couple wrote in a statement on Tuesday. “There is no room for symbols of hatred at a place like this, or anywhere in Orange County.”
They said it is “the responsibility of ever Orange County community member to help educate our youth to make them aware of the dangers and effects of anti-Semitism historically and presently.”
The couple said, “We also need to infuse a love for our county and the environment, emphasizing that public property must be respected and honored.”
