Francine Roston, the former rabbi at Congregation Beth El in South Orange, has become the target of a White supremacist website in her new home in Montana, according to New Jersey Jewish News.

The Daily Stormer has called on readers to “troll” Rabbi Roston and other local Jews. The publication says that it is local Jews are forcing the local mother of White supremacist Richard Spencer to sell her building — a claim that the local government refutes.

From NJJN:

“The post also included photos of Jewish residents of Whitefish emblazoned with yellow stars. Along with using a number of anti-Semitic slurs, the post warned readers against using ‘violence or threats of violence or anything close to that.’ The post claimed that Jewish residents were “threatening” [Richard] Spencer’s mother’s business. Spencer is president of the National Policy Institute, a white supremacist think tank. Last month, he spoke at a white supremacist event in Washington, DC, celebrating President-elect Donald Trump’s victory. At the event, Spencer said ‘Hail Trump!’ and was greeted by Nazi salutes.”

According to NJJN, Roston’s Facebook has been deluged by messages of support from friends around the country.
