Jewish leaders slam NY state ad on truck accusing Jews of spreading polio

Jewish leaders in New York reacted with outrage after the state Health Department sent a truck into Jewish neighborhoods in Long Island accusing the community of spreading polio, according to the New York Post.

On the truck was the message: “Polio is Spreading in Israel. Get Immunized Now.”

Many of the residents targeted by the truck in the Five Towns area of Long Island are Orthodox Jews.

The public service ad on the truck reminded State Assemblyman Ari Brown of the antisemitic trope of “Jews spreading disease.”
