Hate Crimes in Our Community
During the Yom Kippur holiday, a Jewish flag defaced with swastikas and references to white supremacy was left at the Falmouth Jewish Congregation. The hate crime sent ripples of outrage, shock and sadness throughout the region. On The Point, we discuss how to address this undercurrent of religious and racial intolerance as individuals and a community.
