WASHINGTON – Community leaders and representatives of D.C. government shared messages of encouragement and of community support at a public forum on anti-Semitic hate crimes at the Washington Hebrew Congregation Thursday.
Each speaker gave words of encouragement to the group of more than 100 people who attended the town hall.
Rev. Thomas L. Bowen, director of religious affairs for D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, attended to represent the mayor’s office.
“I am here because our mayor is concerned about what happens in our city,” he said.
