Victoria Police release statistics
JCCV CEO Naomi Levin responds to recent statistics released by Victoria Police.
“These statistics from Victoria Police confirm that there has been more than one antisemitic-related crime per day in Victoria since October 7. This is unprecedented and frankly unimaginable.
“This cannot go on. Our community needs elected representatives, multicultural and faith leaders, educators, and giants of business to stand up and say ‘enough is enough’. Generic calls against racism are not satisfactory, the challenge needs to be identified clearly: it is persecution and hatred of Jews.
“Whatever people think of the situation in Israel and Gaza, our local Jewish community must not be held responsible.”
