On Saturday, a rally of more than 100 people was held to promote acceptance and unity following two incidents in which anti-Semitic messages were spray-painted on and near a Hampton family's home.

Two weeks ago a person or persons spray-painted swastikas on the family's garage and Gottheimer campaign sign. The sign was also defaced with offensive words. According to the New Jersey Herald, the family awoke to new anti-Semitic messages spray-painted on the road in front of their house on the same morning as the rally, September 29.

Several people spoke at the rally, including a representative of Gottheimer.

"There's no place for white supremacists or anti-Semitism in our broader community. And last weekend's hate-motivated and vile crime simply does not reflect the values of the people of Sussex County."
