ORLANDO, Fla. — Today, Senator Rick Scott hosted a press conference at Chabad of University of Central Florida with Jewish leaders to condemn the rise of antisemitism and reinforce his support for Israel and Florida’s Jewish community.
Senator Rick Scott said, “In Florida, we are blessed to be home to many vibrant Jewish communities and I was honored to stand alongside Jewish leaders in Orlando today to discuss our strong support for Israel and the fight against antisemitism. I routinely meet with Florida’s Jewish leaders, and have been blessed to visit Israel five times during my time as Governor and now U.S. Senator for Florida. I just returned from my last visit to Israel earlier this month, and it again reinforced how important our partnership is for America’s national security and prosperity. I hope every Floridian will join me in standing resolutely with Israel and our Jewish Communities every day while shining a light on and condemning antisemitism in all forms. I will never stop working with leaders at the local, state and federal level to support them and their right to live in peace and pursue their American Dream.”
