Kenosha, WI – An unwelcome message has found its way back into Kenosha neighborhoods. Antisemitic flyers were found in front of houses near the southwest library, nearly a year after they were last spotted in the city.
“It was completely shocking to learn Monday morning that the fliers had resumed. And simultaneously, we learned that last week the [citations] had been dropped against the individual,” said Rabbi Den Feingold from Beth Hillel Temple in Kenosha.
Rabbi Feingold doesn’t think it’s a coincidence.
“It’s not clear to us exactly right now why the [citations] were dropped. I think we’d like some more communication on that,” she said.
We reached out to the city attorney’s office for comment but didn’t receive a response as of this writing.
“The litter citation stopped it, so that’s all we want is for it to stop. So if those had been upheld we wouldn’t be talking right now,” Rabbi Feingold said.
