Mayor Cahn has issued the statement below in response to a threat made this morning at the Katz Jewish Community Center on Springdale Road. Click here to read the Cherry Hill Police Department's news release about the incident.

We are deeply troubled by the events that transpired this morning at the Katz JCC here in Cherry Hill. While the threat was ultimately deemed to be unfounded, I want to make clear that there is absolutely no place for hatred, intimidation, or intolerance of any kind within our community.

In light of this and other recent events across the country, I want to take this opportunity to make the following statement. In Cherry Hill, we value our diversity; our differences are an integral part of who we are and what makes our town great.

Every human being and every religious and cultural institution has a right to feel safe, and I want our residents to know that we will not sit back and let fear paralyze our community or our residents.

As Mayor, I call on all of our residents to come together to send a message that there is no room for hatred and ignorance in Cherry Hill.

The Cherry Hill Police Department and the Township have a strong relationship with all of our religious and cultural institutions and we will continue to offer whatever resources are necessary to ensure the health, security and peace of mind of our entire community.

Crimes of hate and any similar threat will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."
