Anti-Semitic hate crimes in New York City have doubled since 2018. Where is Mayor Bill de Blasio? On the campaign trail despite polling at zero percent. Horrible.
Brooklyn Jewish Community Fearful Over Onslaught of Attacks
The Jewish communities in Brooklyn are facing battles every day, but mainstream media is silent.
By Jennie Taer, September 5, 2019:
The tight-knit and Orthodox Jewish communities of Brooklyn, NY are facing an onslaught of hate and violence. New York City Councilman and Jewish Caucus Chair Chaim Deutch called it an “epidemic of hate” and urged the Jewish community to not shy away from publicly displaying their observance.
If you are visibly religious, you might be hearing others suggest that you change your garb, dress differently, or hide your affiliation.

We will fight the epidemic of hate in New York City, and we’ll do it without compromising our values. https://t.co/PFR6aY4UeN

The Jewish communities in Brooklyn are facing battles every day, but mainstream media is silent. The most recent attack was on Sunday morning as a father and his eighteen-year-old son were entering their synagogue, according to the Jerusalem Post. Before they were able to enter, however, a group of three intoxicated men began stabbing them with box cutters. According to the paper, the attack occurred in the Kensington section near Borough Park. The two were taken to a nearby hospital and are said to be stable.
On Saturday, an orthodox Jewish man was attacked outside of his synagogue as the Jewish Sabbath was ending in the Midwood neighborhood, according to CBS2 New York. Two attackers who had been drinking engaged the man in a “verbal dispute” that quickly became physical when one of the attackers pushed the man to the ground and began hitting him with his belt.
The craziness continues in Brooklyn. Older Chassidic Jew just brutally assaulted with brick in Crown Heights Park. His teeth were knocked out. Victim hospitalized. Victim fought back. Others in Park came to his rescue.

Last week, the New York Police Department responded to a similar attack in which a man threw a stone at a rabbi in the Crown Heights neighborhood. Days before, suspects threw a large object at an Orthodox Jewish man in that same neighborhood.
In Queens, New York – the City with the highest number of Holocaust survivors outside of Israel – somebody scrawled “Gas Chamber” on the door at a beach club.
Nearly every Jewish family in the world was impacted by the Holocaust, & this hate hurts us all.https://t.co/LonUTZEbVH

Antisemitic hate crimes in the city have doubled since 2018, nearly 150 attacks have been reported. In response, Mayor Bill de Blasio launched the city’s new Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes this week, but it may be too late as the community’s suffering is reaching boiling point.
