Diverse crowd stands with Jewish community at anti-hate crime rally in Brooklyn

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.”

According to the Times of Israel, there have been 16 recorded incidents of anti-Jewish incidents in New York since the December 10 massacre at a kosher market in New Jersey that left three dead.

Just this past Saturday, fives guests were injured in a stabbing attack at the home of a rabbi in Monsey, New York.
