Antisemitism is on the rise throughout the country and Wisconsin isn’t immune as there have been multiple reports of antisemitic flyers being placed on porches in neighborhoods in Wausau.
Around 3 a.m. on Monday, a masked man was caught distributing antisemitic papers on people’s porches. The flyers contained hateful and offensive claims about the Jewish community.
Rabbi Altshuler said he hasn’t seen the pamphlets, but heard about them from Mayor Katie Rosenberg. “I wish that I could say that I was surprised,” said Rabbi Benjamin Altshuler, Mt. Sinai Congregation. ”This is not the first time that something of this nature espoused in our region and certainly not in our country. I was more disappointed that a community like ours is seeing this type of activity.”
