ADL Offers 10K Reward Following Alleged Antisemitic Attack On Eastern Parkway
New York, NY, November 3, 2021 … ADL (the Anti-Defamation League) is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the reported antisemitic attack of a pregnant Jewish woman on the Eastern Parkway between Nostrand and Rogers on November 3.
According to police and reports, a man directly approached the woman, attempted to hit her and threw a bottle at her.
“We are appalled and outraged by the vileness of this attack,” said Scott Richman, ADL NY/NJ Regional Director. “ADL is offering this award to send the unmistakable message that hate-motivated violence and harassment is unacceptable.
