Anti-Semitic Attack in Brooklyn

In a report done by News 12 Rockland, leaders in the Jewish community are expressing fear and concern after reports of an attack at a Brooklyn synagogue on Tuesday morning. In the attack, 22-year old student Levi Rosenblat was left in stable condition after a stab wound to his head by 49-year old Calvin Peters, who was later shot and killed by police when he lunged for an officer. The attack was filmed and Peters can be heard saying, “Kill the jews” multiple times before his death. Patrols by the Rockland Sheriff’s Department have been increased around the county, and officials stated to the news source that centers of worship in the area will most likely be closely watched, though the incident appears to be involving just Peters in Brooklyn, and unrelated to a terrorist group.
