Members of The Westchester County Board of Legislators are deeply disturbed by the recent reports of antisemitic behavior directed at the Leffell School’s girl basketball team by members of Yonkers Roosevelt High School’s girl basketball team. Antisemitism and bigotry in all its forms are never acceptable. We applaud the actions taken to date by both schools, and we support County Executive Latimer’s call for an investigation by the County’s Human Rights Commission. The Board reiterates its commitment to Westchester County’s diversity and to our youth; we will not tolerate hate in any form.
