The arrest comes amidst a rise in anti-Semitic incidents due to the Israel-Hamas war.

The Jewish Federation called for vigilance and courage, while the Temple Israel community aims to remain proud of their heritage despite the challenges.

“After this press conference, we’re going to be lighting Hanukkah candles — because we need light in darkness,” Temple Israel Rabbi Wendy Love Anderson stated.

“During this time of rising antisemitism throughout our country and the world we encourage our community to be especially vigilant and aware of potential threats,” the Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York said.

“At the same time, we can not succumb to fear and intimidation and we must remain proud of our Jewish heritage and traditions.”

“In these challenging times, our unwavering spirit shines as a beacon of hope, proving that even in the darkest of moments, our light remains undimmed,” Temple Israel wrote.
