“Another day, another brutal and vicious attack on a Hasidic Jew in Brooklyn. We don’t need more empty talk from city and state “leaders”. We need action! The NYPD should be stepping up patrols in all Jewish neighborhoods until this wave of violent antisemitism subsides,” Hikind said in a statement late Tuesday night.
