           REDUCING ANTI-SEMITISM THROUGH INCREASED EDUCATION

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Chair recognizes the gentleman from 
Tennessee (Mr. Kustoff) for 5 minutes.
  Mr. KUSTOFF of Tennessee. Mr. Speaker, on December 28, 2019, the 
Jewish community in Monsey, New York, gathered together to celebrate 
Hanukkah. That celebration was cut short due to a vile, anti-Semitic 
attack leaving five people wounded and an entire nation in shock.
  Anti-Semitism is on the rise, and it is important that younger 
generations understand where this hate stems from and why we need to 
combat it. H. Res. 782 does just that.
  This important resolution encourages schools to teach the history of 
anti-Semitism and the Holocaust and calls on law enforcement to bring 
the perpetrators of these attacks to justice.
  We must stop these senseless acts of hate, and I encourage my 
colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support this resolution.
  Mr. Speaker, I do want to thank my colleagues, Congressmen Ted Budd 
and Lee Zeldin, for their leadership in introducing this vital 
legislation with me.
