WEST NYACK, NY – On December 30, 2019 at 7:30 pm the Jewish Federation and Foundation of Rockland County held a Unity Rally & Solidarity event at the Jewish Community Center in West Nyack, New York.

Grafton Thomas of Orange County, NY is now facing federal hate crime charges after authorities found what they described as anti-Semitic materials in several journals and on the suspect’s phone.

According to the criminal complaint, Grafton Thomas was in possession of handwritten journals that referred to Adolf Hitler and Nazi culture, as well as drawings of the Star of David and a Swastika. His internet browsing history also included several noteworthy searches, including “German Jewish Temples near me,” “Why did Hitler hate the Jews?” and “Prominent companies founded by Jews in America.”
