BROOKLYN - The Anti-Defamation League gathered to express its concerns Wednesday on the growing amount of attacks on the Jewish community in Brooklyn.

They say since September there have been over a dozen attacks on Jews in the borough. 

Just this week, an orthodox Jewish teenager was violently attacked in the street in Midwood, and a 60-year-old Jewish man was also beaten and mugged.

Other issues the group addressed included vandalism toward Jewish businesses, the yelling of anti-Semitic slurs and shootings with BB guns.
