#onthisday, 2019, two terrorists influenced by the antisemitic Black Hebrew Israelite group descended on a kosher market in Jersey City and killed 3 people, including a police officer killed prior to the attack at a different location.

We mourn the lives lost on this day one year ago, Zichron Livracha (slide 4)

.

We also call attention to the increasing rate of hate crimes in the US towards Jews - the highest its ever been according to the FBI. Its on us to recognize these tragic events are a symptom of a bigger problem - the virus of antisemitism is ever so present and to stamp it out we must be vigilant, strong, and proud.

Am Yisrael Chai.
