New York, NY — January 5, 2019 — New Yorkers gathered together in solidarity and marched with community leaders and city and statewide elected officials in unity against the rise of anti-Semitism. The march began at Foley Square, crossing the Brooklyn Bridge, and over to Cadman Plaza, where thousands stood together in the belief that hatred of any kind will not be tolerated in New York City.
With the increase of violent, anti-Semitic attacks on the Jewish community throughout the New York region, including Monsey, Brooklyn, and Jersey City, the solidarity march brought together community public figures, civic and nonprofit leaders, religious organizations and thousands of New Yorkers united against hatred. Proud, united and strong. We will not be intimidated.
The march was organized by UJA-Federation of New York (UJA) and the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York (JCRC-NY), ADL-NY, AJC-NY, and the New York Board of Rabbis.
