N.J. man arrested for threatening ADL’s Foxman


(JTA) — A New Jersey man with ties to neo-Nazi organizations was arrested and charged with threatening the Anti-Defamation League’s national director, Abraham Foxman.

Jacques Pluss, 57, of Ridgewood was arrested Wednesday by New Jersey State Police following a SWAT team raid on his apartment, according to reports.

Pluss was charged with bias intimidation and harassment, and for weapons possession after he was found to possess three rifles despite a restraining order that prohibits him from owning weapons. He also frequently visited neo-Nazi websites, police told the Ridgewood News.

He sent several threats to Foxman, according to the organization.
