NYC Mayor Eric Adams Reassures Jewish Neighborhoods that City Will Provide Security

By Hamodia Staff

The NYPD announced that they are closely monitoring the situation in Israel, and while there are no credible threats in New York City at this time, the NYPD will nevertheless deploy resources to shuls and sensitive locations throughout the city. They will also work closely with other law enforcement agencies, along with houses of worship and community leaders to ensure the safety of New Yorkers.

NYC Mayor Eric Adams reassured Jewish residents of New York that the city will do whatever is necessary to provide security for the Jewish neighborhoods.

“As mayor of the largest Jewish population in the world outside of Israel, the significance of Iran’s attack for Jewish New Yorkers — many of whom have family in Israel — is not lost on me, especially with Passover just days away. New York City stands with Israel. While there is no direct or imminent threat to New York City at this time, we have directed the NYPD to deploy additional resources to Jewish communities and houses of worship citywide out of abundance of caution. Our administration has also begun outreach to both Jewish leaders and elected officials across the five boroughs to keep them apprised of the situation. Our intelligence and counterterrorism teams will continue to closely monitor the situation.”

In a video conference held Motzaei Shabbos, the mayor’s administration and the NYPD informed the public the enhanced provisions they have implemented both around houses of worship, upcoming Pesach events and in the subway system around the city.
