Suburban NY Town, Villages, Receive Faxed Anti-Semitic Letter

RAMAPO, N.Y. (AP) -

Police are investigating after an anti-Semitic letter was sent to the government offices of a suburban New York town and two villages.

Ramapo Detective Lt. Mark Emma tells The Journal News that the typed letter was faxed to the town of Ramapo and the villages of Wesley Hills and Pomona in recent weeks.

He says detectives are trying to track down who sent the hate-filled letter. They also will weigh whether the incidents meet the definition of a hate crime.

Pomona Mayor Brett Yagel says his village received a similar letter last year. That one was handwritten.
