Orthodox Jewish Man Attacked on Brooklyn Street in Another Antisemitic Assault

Troubling surveillance footage shows a group of assailants punching and hurling a chair at an Orthodox Jewish man in Brooklyn, the latest in a spate of anti-Semitic attacks on city streets.

“I found disturbing footage of chair throwing & assault on Chassidic Jew,” tweeted Yaacov Behrman, the founder of the Jewish Future Alliance, on Monday.

In the clip, one among a group of about seven creeps throws a chair at a lone Jewish man, continuing on their way before then wheeling around to chase him down, with one of the attackers punching the victim.

Behrman noted that the attack unfolded at Albany Avenue and Lincoln Place in Crown Heights on Dec. 24, the third night of Hanukkah.

“Same group assaulted someone later that night on Union Kingston,” added Behrman, referring to another Crown Heights intersection.

Behrman noted that the victim did not go to the police for fear of his identity being disclosed to the perpetrators.

The attack was just one of a slew of anti-Semitic attacks across the city during the eight-day Hanukkah celebration — a total that doesn’t include a machete-wielding madman’s rampage Saturday night in Monsey, NY that left five Hasidic men injured.
