Up to 250 people rallied in Brooklyn in the wake of hate crimes against Jews in Monsey, Jersey City and Brooklyn, reported the New York Daily News.
Among those joining the demonstrators were members of the Palestinian, Muslim, Christian, Jewish and Sikh communities.
“I think it’s really important we all stand in solidarity and unified with the Jewish community,” Murad Awawdek, 32, a Palestinian American Muslim told the Daily News. “No one deserves to live in fear… So we are here to say … this is unacceptable we want to open communications and figure out how to stop this.”
Just this past Saturday, fives guests were injured in a stabbing attack at the home of a rabbi in Monsey, New York.
