Gov. Christie, senators Menendez and Booker show solidarity with Jewish community at JCC in Tenafly

Gov. Chris Christie and Sens. Menendez and Booker came together this morning in Tenafly for a show of solidarity with the Jewish community.



The lawmakers condemned the recent spate of attacks against the Jewish community and other religious and ethnic groups, saying an attack against one is an attack against all.



"We are the most ethically and religiously diverse state in the nation, and each and every day, we together fight the fights that need to be fought, experience the joys that life brings us through our family, through our friends and our work, and live together peacefully and happily trying to achieve all we can not only for us but for the next generation," says Gov. Christie.



It comes after Missouri man Juan Thompson was arrested in connection to the threats against at least eight U.S. Jewish community centers. His arrest was announced Friday morning.
