LAKEWOOD, NJ – New Jersey 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.

DeSantis, who has been the frontline warrior against the left’s war on America was scheduled to speak at the event.

“It’s absolutely appalling that Governor DeSantis, who has been among our nation’s greatest defenders of Jewish families, has been canceled by the Museum of Jewish Heritage in Manhattan,” said Singer (R-Ocean). “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, of the largest Jewish communities in the United States. Lakewood is home to the second-largest yeshiva in the world.

Singer lashed out at New York City Democrats, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

“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.”
