New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.

NEW YORK, NY — September 28, 2019 — “As members of the Jewish community prepare to celebrate Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, out of an abundance of caution and following a number of appalling anti-Semitic incidents over the past year I am directing the New York State Police to increase patrols at synagogues and other religious centers across our state.

“We will not allow the cowards who contributed to the recent rash of hateful acts against the Jewish community and other groups to intimidate or divide us. In New York, we value diversity, inclusion and acceptance — and I want to assure our Jewish brothers and sisters that New York stands united with them now and always.

“On behalf of all New Yorkers, I say an early Shanah Tovah and wish everyone safe, happy holidays.”
