To the garbage that distributed this anti-Semitic flyer around South Florida this weekend: Your flyers DO NOT intimidate us. We are a STRONG and PROUD people. There are Jews on all sides of the political spectrum, but TOGETHER we ALL rise arm-in-arm against you. ?? ?? ?? pic.twitter.com/K5VFbZYO9T— Mayor Gabriel Groisman (@GabeGroisman) January 23, 2022
