The Roosevelt Island Daily News

What: Council Member Julie Menin invites the New York City community to a discussion on how to prevent and report hate crimes and antisemitism. This virtual town hall is in partnership with the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force, Simon Wiesenthal Center, New York City Commission on Human Rights and the Office of the New York State Attorney General.

When: Wednesday, February 9 at 7:00 p.m.

Where: Zoom Link with required registration: https://museumoftolerance.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_tHWZ20f3S0iYDly8G24m3Q

Why: On January 8th, at a Chase Bank ATM at East 86th Street and York Avenue, a customer withdrew several bills that had Swastikas and Nazi symbols. Several instances of antisemitism have occurred in the neighborhood these past few months.

Last year, New York State had the most antisemitic incidents out of any state in the country. Both Manhattan and Brooklyn each had almost 100 antisemitic incidents. In the light of multiple recent antisemitic incidents in our community and the frightening hostage situation in Colleyville, Texas, a Town Hall on Antisemitism is being held.
