New York State and New York City police have stepped up their protection of Jewish communities and synagogues, Governor Kathy Hochul says.

There are no known threats to New York Jews, she says, adding that local authorities are in touch with the FBI and other federal partners after the terror onslaught in Gaza.

Jewish security organizers have also said there are no known threats to US Jews, but are urging vigilance.
