Jewish Groups Launch New York March to Protest Rise in anti-Semitic Incidents
NEW YORK – Thousands of people are expected to march along the Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday to protest the rise in anti-Semitic incidents in the New York City area, including the stabbing attack in Monsey last week.
The solidarity march will be held under the banner “No Hate. No Fear” and is sponsored by several Jewish organizations including the UJA-Federation of New York, the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee and the New York Board of Rabbis among others.
“In light of the ongoing and persistent attacks against our community, it’s time for us to come together and demonstrate our collective resolve,” the organizers said. City and statewide elected officials, public figures, civic leaders, as well as faith-based organizations from various communities are expected to join.
