Day, Falco Show Support For Rockland JCC

WEST NYACK, N.Y. -- In a show of public unity, Rockland County Executive Ed Day joined together with County Sheriff Louis Falco and other officials to show support for the Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Rockland.

"We are here today to show our strength and courage, not fear and weakness," Day said at the West Nyack JCC on Wednesday. "We stand here today at the JCC to show that we are not afraid. We are not afraid to come here, to use the gym, to take a class, to play basketball, to do yoga, to bring our children to preschool or camp."

Describing the JCC as "truly a center of our community," Day said the center has always been welcoming to all.

"I can tell you as a former law enforcement commander: We have your back," Day said.

The event and Day's comments come as Jewish institutions across the United States and Canada -- including schools and community centers -- have come under threat, according to media reports.

Scores of bomb threats -- received through email, telephone calls and automated systems -- have materialized against Jewish targets since January, according to CNN, which said authorities are unsure in most cases who has been making the threats.
