Thousands of people are expected in New York City on Sunday at 11 a.m. to participate in a solidarity march and rally against anti-Semitism.

It will kick off under the banner of “No Hate. No Fear.” in Foley Square in Lower Manhattan and continue across the Brooklyn Bridge, followed by a rally in Columbus Park near Cadman Plaza.

Key sponsors of the Jan. 5 event include the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, the Anti-Defamation League, the Board of Rabbis of New York, the American Jewish Committee and the UJA-Federation of New York. Dozens of other groups, including those representing other faith communities, have also signed on as sponsors of the event.

“This Sunday, we will march through our streets—proud, united and strong,” said organizers in a statement to the press. “The 1.5 million Jews of our great city and region will not stand down. We will not be intimidated.”

The march will be held a week after a Dec. 28 stabbing attack during a Hanukkah candle-lighting at the home of Rabbi Chaim Rottenberg in Monsey, N.Y., where five people were seriously injured; and a month after the deadly attack on a kosher supermarket in Jersey City, N.J., that resulted in the deaths of four civilians and a police detective.

It also comes as Jews across the region have reported an increasing number of anti-Semitic incidents from hate speech to physical assaults.

Groups and people of all ages, religions and backgrounds are encouraged to join the event, as well as to use mass transit and dress for outdoor weather.

JNS is more than just another news website and syndication service.

At JNS, you get the facts about Israel and Jewish issues without the bias that so often tilts the argument against the Jewish state. JNS articles and columns are republished every week by digital outlets and print newspapers across the globe.

We need your financial help to keep JNS on target as we continue our fair and accurate reporting.
