There have been several anti-Semitic hate crimes against the Jewish community in Chicago in recent weeks.
Last week, police arrested Shahid Hussain, 39, who he said had been charged with an anti-Semitic crime by spraying swastikas on January 30 at two synagogues and two high schools in Chicago’s West Rogers Park.
Rabbi Levi Notik of the FREE Synagogue told Fox News Digital on Tuesday that in the wake of those incidents, “our message is that we need to add kindness and goodness and be positive.”
“We are not going to be afraid. We’re going to stand strong, we’ll get through this,” Notik said. “Judaism’s antidote to hatred is love and our solution to darkness is light and our remedy for evil is good.”
