On Sunday, 25,000 people marched in New York City to show solidarity with Jewish Americans and protest and reject the wave of anti-Semitic hate sweeping our nation. In the wake of a series of terrible anti-Semitic actions and attacks in New York City, Jersey City, and the tri-state area, this was a powerful and moving event. We are grateful to the organizers of the march and all those who joined in this meaningful gesture.
The American Jewish Congress was proud to take part in the march. AJCongress President Jack Rosen and staff took this opportunity to meet with elected officials in New York who are tackling the issue of anti-Semitism head-on and seeking actionable solutions. Among them were Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, and Congressman Gregory Meeks, all of whom have been strong partners with the Jewish community in the fight against hate.
