Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement after reports of a stabbing at the home of a rabbi in Rockland County. The attack came as the community was gathering to celebrate Hanukkah.
“Randy and I join the Hudson Valley as we pray for those hurt in last night’s horrific stabbing attack at a Hanukkah celebration in Monsey.
“I will continue to monitor this situation, and work with state and local law enforcement and leaders to address the rise of hate crimes against the Jewish community in New York. We cannot tolerate anti-Semitism in any form.
“Hate has no home in the Hudson Valley.”
