Earlier today, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced an increased police presence in areas of the city with higher Jewish populations. This is in response to the growing wave of vicious anti-Semitic attacks in New York City:
Hate doesn’t have a home in our city.
In light of recent anti-Semitic attacks, the NYPD will increase their presence in Boro Park, Crown Heights and Williamsburg.
Anyone who terrorizes our Jewish community WILL face justice.
