Long Island Jews have a reason to Worry...

According to reports, Anti-Semitic hate crimes are on the rise in Suffolk county:

A menorah in front of a Bay Shore synagogue was vandalized. It is the second such crime involving the Jewish holiday candelabrum. Police records indicate that as of November there have been 30 anti-Jewish crimes. Last year, there were 25. And in November there were 19 such crimes.Hate crimes overall are on the rise in Suffolk County. This year, police have recorded 94 through last month. There were 89 such crimes overall last year.

Thankfully I don't live in Suffolk but I'm worry about it spreading out to Nassau. Just another reminder we are strangers in a strange land.
