This was an attack on Jews in America at a Kosher market where the customers are Orthodox Jews. This was in a Jersey City neighborhood where Ultra Orthodox-Satmar Jews live together with low income immigrants. Brooklyn has become too costly for them
so they tried to build a community just a few miles away.
Jewish communities everywhere have of course condemned the attacks and joined in support of this Northern New Jersey community. Our community stands with them as we do with Jews and victims of terror and hate crimes everywhere. This is the new normal we live in. When I think of 2019, anti-Semitism and attacks on Jews have been most dominant - even in a world where articles of impeachment are on the agenda for the president of the United States and in Israel a third election cycle in less than a year has just begun.
