Cuomo boosts security near synagogues during Jewish holidays – Times Union

ALBANY – In response to several recent anti-Semitic incidents, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is ramping up State Police patrols near synagogues and other religious centers this week as the Jewish High Holidays begin. The decision was made “out of an abundance of caution,” Cuomo said in a Saturday press release. “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,” he said. “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.”
