Thousands gathered Sunday for a march over the Brooklyn Bridge in support of the Jewish community and to condemn hate after a series of attacks on Jewish people in the area.
Demonstrators marched over the bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn for the No Hate, No Fear Solidarity March. The march began at Foley Square and closed out with a rally at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn.
It comes on the heels of a number of anti-Semitic incidents, including last week's stabbing in Monsey that left multiple people injured.
The goal of the No Hate, No Fear Solidarity March was to bring people together to show strength in numbers.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who attended the rally along with other elected officials, announced that he will make an additional $45 million available to go toward protection for non-public schools and places of worship.
A No Hate, No Fear interfaith service was held Sunday afternoon at a temple in Tarrytown. Dozens of people attended to condemn anti-Semitism at Temple Beth Abraham.
Local officials joined the community, including Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner who wants to create a public hate crime database in Westchester. Other proposals include imposing a minimum punishment against those who commit hate crimes in New York.
