THE ATTACK WAS FIRST REPORTED BY NEW YORK CITY COUNCILMAN CHAIM DEUTSCH IN A TWEET. HE SAID THE NEW YORK POLICE DEPARTMENT’S HATE CRIMES UNIT IS INVESTIGATING THE INCIDENT.

On Friday, a group of seven youths knocked the shtreimels — the fur hats often worn by married haredi Orthodox men — off the heads of two Hasidic Jews in the Williamsburg neighborhood in an incident caught on surveillance video.

I’m working with the victim of a hate crime in Gravesend, who was verbally assaulted this morning as he entered a synagogue for prayers.

On Sunday, dozens of people gathered in City Hall Park for a rally condemning the increasing number of anti-Semitic attacks taking place throughout the city. They condemned city officials for not taking more action to stop the attacks from happening.

There have been 152 anti-Semitic hate crimes so far this year, according to the NYPD, compared with 93 in 2018.
