THE JEWISH COMMUNITY IS CELEBRATING HANUKKAH - BUT SOME SAY THERES A DISTURBING TREND PUTTING A DAMPER ON THEIR FESTIVITIES.
every night we are adding another light to hanukkah to bring more light in this world and unfortunately that light is a little bit diminished. and we are not going to let that happen.
COUNCILMEMBER CHAIM DEUTSCH SAYS THE MOST RECENT antisemitic ATTACK HAPPENED ON THURSDAY - TWEETING OUT - "It's only the fifth night of Chanukah, but we've just had our sixth hate crime of the holiday. This afternoon, a female physically assaulted another woman in Sheepshead Bay, while referring to her as a "f*****g Jew". TY @NYPD61Pct & @NYPDHateCrimes for the quick arrest." OVER THE PHONE - HE TOLD ME THIS POINTS TO A LARGER PROBLEM.
it seems like its open season on the jewish community where people are coming out and attacking jews on the streets. there was a time when every time there was a hate crime, people were shocked. Now, any day that goes by without a hate crime is considered a relief..."
some members of the Jewish community here in Crown Heights – where one of those attacks happened - say people are looking over their shoulders.
its really scary to know that 2019 2020 even in my home in crown heights which has tons of orthodox jews i still have to be concerned walking down the street or even be concerned of my fiance walking down the street.
i feel afraid actually to walk down the street and i feel on my guard and it doesnt make sense and shouldnt be this way.
The NYPD also confirms there was another attack on a Jewish man on Wednesday in borough park. We are told he was punched in the face, but investigators have not deemed it a bias incident. In Crown Heights, Hannah Kliger, news 12 Brooklyn
