Senator Bob Singer Slams Jewish Museum for Banning Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis

Senator Robert Singer said Manhattan’s Museum of Jewish Heritage was wrong to cancel a planned Jewish Leadership Conference event after the museum learned that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was an invited speaker.

“It’s absolutely appalling that Governor DeSantis, who has been among our nation’s greatest defenders of Jewish families, has been cancelled by the Museum of Jewish Heritage in Manhattan,” said Singer. “When New York City did nothing to address rampant violence against Jews on the streets, DeSantis welcomed a flood of Jewish families that moved to Florida seeking safety. An institution whose mission is to remember the Holocaust should welcome a leader who strongly protects people of the Jewish faith who are under assault today.”

Singer, who is Jewish, represents Lakewood, one of the largest Jewish communities in the United States. Lakewood is home to the second-largest yeshiva in the world.

Singer noted that DeSantis’s strong support of Jewish families stands in stark contrast to many elected Democrats in New York whose antisemitism is often thinly veiled at best.

“How many times have New York’s Democrat leaders like AOC made comments or taken actions that were hostile to the Jewish community and Israel?” asked Singer. “They get a free pass for shockingly overt antisemitism from New York society because they are progressive, while leaders like DeSantis who actually defend Jewish families are shunned simply for being conservative. It’s disappointing, but not surprising.”

  1. YWN had to remind everyone to sign up to Lakewoodalerts status today.
    It seems they don’t have enough subscribers.
    It may have to with their insistence of posting pictures of nashim.

  2. Lakewoodalerts does not post all comments. They are no different than TLR. They tried promoting themselves in the beginning by saying how bad oh bad TLS is for not posting comments that are not to their liking, but guess what they are no different!
