“This ongoing epidemic of anti-Semitic attacks needs to be treated. Enough is Enough. Jews should not have to fear for their lives in America to go their houses of worship” - Rabbi Marvin Hier
Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center will be urging President Trump to instruct the FBI to create a special task force in wake of unending attacks against Jews and their religious institutions. The latest attack was a violent machete attack against Jewish worshippers in Monsey, New York on Saturday night.
Members of the media will be updated on the latest anti-Semitic attacks locally and nationally. Just this week, coinciding with festival of Chanukah, there have been at least ten incidents.
