Thousands march in New York City against anti-Semitism in wake of attacks
Thousands marched over the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City on Sunday in a show of solidarity with the area’s Jewish community following a spate of anti-Semitic violence in recent weeks, including the stabbing attack on Hanukkah celebrants at a rabbi’s home.
The interfaith protest, sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League and other Jewish groups, began at Manhattan’s Foley Square before proceeding across the East River into Brooklyn for a rally at Cadman Plaza as marchers chanted, “No hate, no fear.”
“I am so grateful to the people of all faiths who have come here today, Christian and Jewish, Hindu and Muslim, and every other faith, to say that we ... New Yorkers and we Americans will not stand for hate and bigotry,” U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, told the crowd.
