A Jewish man living in Brooklyn, New York, was the victim of an anti-Semitic attack on Friday, shortly before the beginning of the Sabbath.
Tzvika Tzuker told Arutz Sheva about the attack. He said he was walking down the street when suddenly two non-Jewish men began shouting anti-Semitic abuse.
Tzuker chose not to respond to their insults. However, instead of calming down, the two began to physically attack him, hitting him in the face.
Tzuker’s eye was hurt in the incident, and he required medical care. Police are investigating the incident.
There has been a recent increase in anti-Semitism in New York, Tzuker said, the reasons for which are unclear. He called on local authorities to take action quickly, warning that if nothing is done to stop the increasingly frequent assaults, one is likely to end with more serious injuries.
