Mayor de Blasio and Governor Cuomo joined local leaders to take a stand in support of the Jewish community today after a string of anti-Semitic incidents in and around the city.
The "No Hate, No Fear" march across the Brooklyn Bridge was led by the United Jewish Appeal Federation of New York and the New York Board of Rabbis, among other groups.
The march comes amid a spike in anti-Semitic incidents across the city, including several during Hanukkah.
According to the NYPD, there was 24 percent rise in anti-Semitic incidents in 2019 compared to 2018.
The march took place in the wake of a deadly shooting at a Kosher deli in Jersey City last month, and the stabbing during a Hanukkah party in Monsey, New York.
The march began at 11 a.m. at Foley Square.
