A group of Yeshiva students posing for a class photo were the victims of the latest hate incident in NYC.
On Wednesday (May 8), the students and faculty of Mesivta Shaarei Chaim were posing for a group photo in front of the yeshiva, which is housed at the Young Israel of Far Rockaway, located at 716 Beach 9th Street.
As the boys were in middle of taking their photo, a black Chevy Tahoe traveling on Beach 9th Street stopped in front of that location and began taking pictures of the group. There were 2 black males in the vehicle who yelled, “dirty (expletive removed) Jews”, and “kill the (expletive removed) Jews”. The vehicle then drove off.
The vehicle had a North Carolina license plate with the first 3 letters PHV posted on the vehicles back end.
The Rockaway Nassau Safety Patrol (RNSP Shomrim) were contacted as well as the police and canvassed the area for the vehicle.
A police report was filed with the 101st Precinct, and the matter was referred to the NYPD’s Hate Crimes unit.
This is the fourth hate incident in NYC this week reported by YWN. A Hasidic man was assaulted in Williamsburg by a group of anti-Semitic thugs on Shabbos; A Hasidic man in Williamsburg was punched in the head on Tuesday, and an NYPD Traffic Agent use an anti-Semitic slur against a Jewish driver.
