CARMEL, IN – Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN05) provided the following statement regarding the arrest of the person responsible for the act of antisemitism perpetrated against Congregation Shaarey Tefilla in Carmel:

“Despicable, anti-Semitic acts of intolerance and bigotry have absolutely no place in our community and do not represent our Hoosier values. The perpetrator of this criminal violation of civil rights has been apprehended and will be brought to justice in a court of law thanks to the swift and diligent work of the Carmel Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I am grateful the person responsible will be held accountable for his actions by the law and applaud the U.S. Attorney’s Office for their attention to this reprehensible crime. In the wake of this heinous vandalism, I am proud our Carmel community and state joined forces to speak out against acts of antisemitism.”
