Jews in many states across the US are reporting anti-semitic crimes following the cease-fire in Gaza and Israel. From states with small Jewish communities, to states that were previously thought to be Jewish sanctuaries, activists are vandalizing synagogues and attacking individuals all under the guise of pro-Palestine activism.
The Diamond District in New York saw violence in its streets Thursday. Groups of pro-Palestine protestors shouted at Jewish people while waving Palestinian flags was captured on video. An explosion was also captured by someone with a cell phone. Police confirmed later that an individual had shot a firework out of a car.
In California, a truck with Palestinian flags was captured on security footage chasing a Jewish man who was on foot Monday. He was likely targeted because this happened near a Los Angeles synagogue on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. Rep. Mike Loychik (R-CA) brought attention to the issue of anti-semitic crime in LA on Twitter.
Synagogues in Illinois and Arizona were vandalized Thursday. In Skokie, Illinois, a pro-Palestine activists attached a “free Palestine” sign to the door. They also smashed several windows before they left. The attack was captured on security footage.
Tuscon, Arizona also saw its synagogue vandalized, but weren’t able to capture the culprits. Someone threw a rock through the glass door. State Rep. Alma Hernandez (R-03) brought attention to the attack by tweeting photos. Since, the synagogue has started a Go Fund Me to raise money to further secure the building.
It just so happened to be the synagogue of ex-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (R-AZ). She called the attack “disgusting,” but also wrote in a tweet “despite these actions, we will not be shaken. Hate has no place in Arizona.”
Rabbi Avremi Zippel discovered a swastika etched into the glass of his synagogue in Salt Lake City, Utah Monday. Zippel vowed, “We will not cower in fear.” He saw this as a direct result of the conflict in Jerusalem. “But tell me more how this is about a land dispute….” he tweeted.
Still, even as these attacks become several days old, there has been no comment from President Biden, who recently signed an anti-Asian and Pacific Islander hate crime law. Even some major news organizations have left it out.

Fox News reports that “Menstrual Dignity for Students” tool kits containing instructions and tips for “menstruation-positive” language for families.
Part of the kit reads: “Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation.”
