A rally took place outside of the Brooklyn Museum on Wednesday as some New Yorkers stood against antisemitism taking place across the city and the globe.
The New York City Public Schools Alliance joined forces with the EndJewHatred community and other organizations to host this rally. This comes after antisemitism allegations at Original High School in Sheepshead Bay.
Organizers at Wednesday’s rally say that Jewish teachers in the public school system have been targeted and the city needs to protect them.
The deputy chancellor of the Department of Education also spoke out against these allegations and says it’s important for students and staff to feel supported.
"Make sure that all your educators and staff are comfortable moderating these very controversial subjects that discussions of that be proactive about it at Origins High School we have a school leader who did exactly that,” said deputy chancellor Daniel Weisberg.
Some counter-protesters were spotted at the rally in response to the ongoing protest, leading to heightened tensions.
