Solidarity march over Brooklyn Bridge shows support for Jewish community

Posted: Updated:

Thousands marched Sunday to support the Jewish community and condemn hate after a series of recent attacks on Jewish people in the area.

Demonstrators marched across the Brooklyn Bridge for the No Hate, No Fear Solidarity March.

Some Connecticut residents joined in on the march. The UJA/JCC in Greenwich helped organize the event.

A few days ago, Sen. Richard Blumenthal hosted a roundtable discussion finding ways to prioritize federal funding to keep Jewish communities in Connecticut safe.

The march comes on the heels of a number of anti-Semitic incidents, including last week's stabbing in Monsey, New York, that left multiple people injured.

The No Hate, No Fear Solidarity March brought people together to show strength in numbers.

The march began at Foley Square in Manhattan, went across the Brooklyn Bridge and ended with a rally at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn.
