Statement on Posts Threatening Cornell University Jewish Living Center

Tompkins County condemns the hateful and targeted posts threatening Jewish students at Cornell University. Antisemitism, violent threats, and hate speech of any kind are intolerable.

All students in our community deserve safe learning and living environments regardless of ethnicity or creed. Targeted threats toward Jewish students are unacceptable and cruel.

Tompkins County commends the law enforcement agencies working diligently to keep people safe and to investigate these threats of violence.
