On Last Night's Attack at a Hanukkah Gathering in Monsey, NY

Sunday, December 29, 2019

Dear Columbia Community,

We learned late last night about the horrific stabbings at a Hanukkah party in Monsey, New York, and we are keenly aware of the significant increase in hate crimes against Jewish communities in New York more generally. Please know that our thoughts are with the victims of this newest wave of violence targeted at Jewish communities and with those in the Columbia community who may feel especially affected and outraged by this attack in the wake of so many others. We share these concerns and remain a resource and campus partner for all across Columbia. For students seeking support at this time, please do not hesitate to contact your dean of students, any of these resources, or the Office of University Life. 


In community,

Suzanne B. Goldberg
Executive Vice President for University Life
Herbert and Doris Wechsler Clinical Professor of Law
