Tzvika Zuker, a Jewish resident of Brooklyn, New York was attacked right before the beginning of the Sabbath by two assailants described as being of African-American descent.
Zuker told Arutz Sheva that he was making his way somewhere right before the onset of the Sabbath, when he was suddenly set upon by two men who started yelling anti-Semitic epithets at him against Judaism and Jews. Zuker said he did not respond to the provocation until they started to physically attack him. He sustained an eye injury, and was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Police have opened an investigation into the matter.
