December 26, 2023
“This weekend, a video was brought to our attention that showed an NYBG employee making a disturbing statement recently about the attacks in Israel on October 7. We take this matter very seriously, and following an immediate investigation, this individual is no longer employed by NYBG.
“The celebration of violence and loss of life shown in this video does not reflect NYBG’s values in any way. We mourn the tragic and ongoing suffering and loss of life in Israel and Gaza and urgently hope for peace.
“NYBG is committed to being a safe and positive environment for people of all backgrounds, creeds, and beliefs. NYBG is a place of joy and respite, and we are dedicated to it being a safe and welcoming environment for all.”
