New York officials are condemning the stabbing at a Monsey synagogue and call for additional efforts to combat rising anti-Semitism.
I am deeply disturbed by the situation unfolding in Monsey, New York tonight.
There is zero tolerance for acts of hate of any kind and we will continue to monitor this horrific situation.
I stand with the Jewish community tonight and every night.

There have been NINE anti-Semitic attacks in NYC in the past week.
And now this horror tonight just outside the city, in Monsey.
This is a full blown crisis. None of what we are doing is good enough.https://t.co/VXFnUSW694

Being Jewish should not mean living in fear. These reports are heartbreaking and horrifying.
I want to be very clear: we must redouble our efforts to keep our community safe in the face of rising anti-Semitism. https://t.co/E82Lp6p9GC
