National Antisemitism Has Local Roots
America's peace is threatened by a national rift, but it's being fueled in unexpected ways by antisemitism at local and state levels — impacting children and communities.
While GOP leaders remain quiet about Trump-Ye-Fuentes and the surge of Jewish hate speech, antisemitism echoes are heard locally.
New Jersey, 2nd highest state for antisemitic incidents, a custody case is rife with antisemitism. The mother has effectively highjacked the Family Court software system, using it for hate speech against her son's father, with whom she shares 50/50 custody. The father Mr. Konstantinovski, is of Jewish faith, granted asylum and U.S. citizenship after Jewish persecution in Russia. The mother is Russian, residing in the U.S. Her written ethnic slurs break the restraining order placed on her for domestic violence. The son, who identifies as Jewish, was provided court-ordered therapy after he expressed suicidal ideation at his school. Neither the Court nor the appointed parent coordinator (PC), Atty Romanova have intervened in 8 months, even after the mother threatened to move her son to Russia without permission.
Family courts usually appoint a psychiatrist or psychologist as parenting coordinator (PC) to mediate contention in custody cases. The APA guidelines for PC roles suggest this, but the New Jersey Family Court System has assigned an attorney instead, as there are no standardized procedures for PCs.
Attorney Carmagnola, President, Carmagnola & Ritardi, LLC, had formally petitioned the New Jersey Family Court on behalf of the New Jersey State Bar Association more than 20 months ago, citing urgent need for a standardized approach to PC appointments due to difficulties impacting families.
In Florida, antisemitic symbols and writing created at vandalism and burglary events were orchestrated by three 16-year-olds, including at a children's playground.
ALERT The U.S. DHS re-issued a National Terrorism Advisory on 11-30-2022, indicating potential threat to LGBTQ, Jewish, migrant communities from violent extremists inside the U.S.
