Local News News & Updates

     A delegation from the Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County, joined by friends from the Jewish Federation of Ulster County, marched together with thousands of others across the Brooklyn Bridge on Sun., Jan. 5 at the No Hate, No Fear Solidarity March. The march was organized in response to the growing number of anti-Semitic attacks against the Jewish community, including recent attacks in Jersey City, Brooklyn, and Monsey.

     “We have reached a breaking point in the Jewish community,” said Rabbi Rachel Rubenstein, Executive Director of the Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County.

     The Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County has partnered with the Orange County District Attorney’s Office on an initiative to educate students about the dangers of hate speech and to train law enforcement to effectively investigate and prosecute hate crimes. In addition, the Jewish Federation works with schools across the county to bring Holocaust education and anti-bias training to students and teachers.

     To report an anti-Semitic incident, email the Jewish Federation at info@jewishorangeny.org or call 562-7860.
