Statement From Governor Cuomo on One Year Anniversary of Monsey Attack

“One year ago today, a hate-fueled attack on the Jewish community in Monsey shook us all to our core and led to the tragic death of Josef Neumann, may his memory be a blessing. Here in New York, we find strength in our differences, and know that an attack on one of us is an attack on us all. An act of such violent hatred only strengthens our resolve and brings the family of New York closer together.

“This has been a difficult year on a number of fronts, and adding to this struggle has been the continued attempts by despicable actors to divide us and attack people for who they are or what they believe. New York has zero tolerance for this behavior and through the Josef Neumann Hate Crimes Domestic Terrorism Act, we have taken nation-leading action to clearly define these hateful crimes as what they really are – domestic terrorism. On this mournful anniversary, let us recommit our promise not only to our Jewish brothers and sisters, but to the entire New York community, that we will never waiver in the face of hate and intolerance.”
