Statement from State Sen. Mike Delph

State Sen. Mike Delph (R-Carmel) made the following statement today regarding the anti-Semitic vandalism committed against Congregation Shaarey Tefilla in Carmel:

STATEHOUSE (July 29, 2018) — “Each year for the last several years I have had the honor of introducing Rabbi Benjamin Sendrow of Congregation Shaarey Tefilla to my Senate colleagues as he offered our daily prayer in the Indiana State Senate. I was shocked and saddened to learn about the recent vandalism that occurred at his synagogue.

“Everyone in the United States should feel free to worship according to the dictates of his or her own conscience without fear. Anti-Semitism is an evil that cannot be tolerated and must be confronted. It is my hope that the FBI and Carmel Police Department will find the perpetrators so they can be brought to justice swiftly. I strongly condemn this behavior and encourage all of my fellow Hoosiers to do so as well.”
