Beer Pong Game Demonstrates Need To Educate People About the Holocaust

To the Editor:

The Jewish Federation of Princeton Mercer Bucks and the Board of Rabbis of Princeton Mercer Bucks condemn the beer pong game of “Jews vs. Nazis” that took place in Princeton. This activity demonstrates that there is still a great deal of work to do in educating people about the horrors of the Holocaust.

At the same time, we recognize Jamaica Ponder for her courage in speaking up and alerting our community to this disturbing incident. We have watched for too long as people have remained silent when such actions occur. We are grateful to all those who are working to ensure that these type of episodes do not occur in the future. We are happy to assist in any way that we can.
