Thousands of people marched across the Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday to protest against anti-Semitism after the latest round of bloody anti-Semitic attacks, reports USA Today.

The “Solidarity March,” organized by a broad swath of Jewish groups, kicked off at 11 a.m. in New York and made its way toward Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn. The multicultural crowd included a contingent from Ohio and a bishop from Brooklyn, as well as Jews from across North Jersey and New York’s Rockland County, sites of two mass anti-Semitic attacks over the past five weeks.

“An attack on any house of worship is an attack on all houses of worship,” said Ismael Claudio, bishop of the Pentecostal Church of Jesus Christ in Brooklyn, who was at Cadman Plaza. “I’m standing with my Jewish brothers and sisters. Today [it’s] them: tomorrow, might be us.”

We ask that you continue to pray for the safety and well-being of Jewish people around the world and for the peace of Jerusalem.
