Anti-Semitic Vandalism in Brooklyn Sparks Community Outrage

On Sunday, over 100 residents of the Midwood section of Brooklyn, NY, along with elected officials, staged a peaceful protest march on Ocean Parkway past the four public benches from which 16 swastikas had been removed after a pre-dawn anti-Semitic attack Friday. Carrying an Israeli flag, the marchers were led by Mr. Hikind, State Senator Eric Adams, Rabbi Chaim Gruber, New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, civil rights lawyer Norman Siegel and other community leaders.
