October 12, 2020

The heads of two prominent Jewish organizations backing opposing parties in the US on Monday issued a joint condemnation of recent attacks by extremists in Brooklyn against a local journalist in their community who has warned of the dangers of the coronavirus.

“As leaders of organizations who don’t normally agree on much, we have come together to speak in one voice condemning the unconscionable violence and threats targeting journalist Jacob Kornbluh,” Jewish Democratic Council of America executive director Halie Soifer and Republican Jewish Coalition head Matt Brooks said in a statement.
