High Security Required in US Synagogues over Jewish Holiday

The anti-Israel Left has normalized Jew-hatred in the United States. This is the result.

NY State Governor Andrew Cuomo on Monday ordered an increase of police patrols outside synagogues during Rosh Hashanah, and next week, during Yom Kippur.

The government said in a statement: “Out of an abundance of caution and following a number of appalling anti-Semitic incidents over the past year I am directing the State Police to increase patrols at synagogues and other religious centers across our state.”

While wishing everyone “safe, happy holidays,” Gov. Cuomo stressed: “We will not allow the cowards who contributed to the recent rash of hateful acts against the Jewish community and other groups to intimidate or divide us. In New York, we value diversity, inclusion and acceptance — and I want to assure our Jewish brothers and sisters that New York stands united with them now and always.”

Following the Oct. 27 mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh, PA, the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh hired armed guards to secure synagogues around town, and installed alarms, cameras and alert buttons, ahead of Rosh Hashanah.
