Norfolk, VA – A Norfolk neighborhood is appalled by troubling leaflets found on its doorstep. Several people found papers with antisemitic messages outside their homes this weekend.
Many homeowners on Belvedere and West Belvedere streets in Norfolk found plastic bags full of corn and flyers with messages attacking the Jewish faith.
“This piece of junk is not representative of the goodness of people or what they call evil. At the end of the day, it’s a piece of junk,” said homeowner Sarah Howell of Norfolk.
On Sunday, Sarah Howell found a bag in her front yard containing what many say was antisemitic messages.
“Emotionally, it’s just embarrassing for whoever did this,” Howell said.
Rabbi Levi Brashevitzky runs Chabad of Tidewater in Norfolk and said the hateful rhetoric does not break his faith.
“It’s a time for us to work together and restore positivity and kindness. And we can do that by introducing or reintroducing positive, charitable, and good deeds and making them a routine in our lives,” Brashevitzky said
