Mayor Bill de Blasio addresses anti-Semitism across NYC at Manhattan synagoguePosted: Updated:
Mayor Bill de Blasio stopped by a Manhattan synagogue Saturday to discuss the recent string of anti-Semitic attacks across New York City.
He said that properly educating young people on anti-Semitism and its history is just one way to combat the crisis.
De Blasio also discussed social media and how it can play a role in spreading hateful views. He says there will continue to be an increased security presence in Jewish neighborhoods, particularly in Brooklyn, where several recent attacks have occurred.
The mayor says it's important to have different, diverse communities in the city work with the Jewish community to display a united front, and teach people that hate will not be tolerated.
A solidarity march will be held Sunday at Foley Square, where different organizations, community leaders and advocates are expected to come together to denounce hate.
