Religious leaders and community members came together at Prospect Heights Tuesday night to light a candle and demand a stop to hate and violence.
As News 12 has reported, there have been nearly a dozen attacks across the city in the past week and a half.
Rabbis from local synagogues, reverends from nearby churches, leaders from all types of religious communities agreed that anti-Semitic attacks have become far to common and the only way to put a stop to them is to reach out to one another.
New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams said it takes action to make a difference.
"We got to stand up, call it out and find a way to make the community feel safe," Williams said.
