Swastika Painted On Former Mahwah Country Club Building

MAHWAH – As reported on Mahwah Daily Voice, two swastikas were found on the boarded-up former Apple Ridge Country Club. As an ongoing investigation, there is not comment to made on the crime itself. However, Mayor Bill Laforet (I) of Mahwah has decided that there must be action taken to show that hate has no home in a town and community with over 14 places of varied worship.

 At 2 PM in the Mahwah Township offices, rabbis, Christian leaders, Sikh leaders, and governmental leaders including a representative of Josh Gottheimer’s office and Freeholder Chairwoman Tracy Silna Zur (D- Franklin Lakes), will be gathering to speak out against anti-Semitism and other acts of hatred towards any marginalized group. They will condemn the recent vandalism, and while standing in solidarity, discuss how we may move forward as one community.

“These were horrible acts, they were disgusting and we are going to denounce these acts,” Mahwah Mayor Bill Laforet.

The meeting will take place at 2 PM at 475 Corporate Drive in Mahwah. Press is invited to attend.
