Jewish community speaks out against recent antisemitic messages displayed across Jacksonville


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Following the antisemitic comments and tweets Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, shared that have caused a lot of controversy in America, Jacksonville has seen multiple appearances of antisemitic rhetoric across the area.

In the midst of Georgia-Florida game day celebrations, an antisemitic message that read “Kanye was right about the Jews” was projected across the TIAA Bank Field Saturday evening.

“And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.” Matthew 24:10

Another antisemitic message displayed on banners that read “End Jewish Supremacy in America” and “Honk if you know it’s the Jews” hung from an overpass on the Westside, just off Chaffee Road and Interstate 10.

News4JAX spoke to the CEO of the Jewish Federation and Foundation of Northeast Florida about the recent messages.

Mariam Feist said this is Jewish hatred that’s been going on for centuries and the Jewish community is saddened by all of this.

The deadliest attack on the Jewish community in U.S. history happened in 2018 when 11 people were killed in the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
