“With Israel under the constant threat of rocket attacks, it is important that we come together as a borough and as a community to stand in solidarity for a democracy that has been an unwavering friend to the United States and a refuge for so many,” Assemblymember Cymbrowitz said.

The son of Holocaust survivors, Cymbrowitz said it is fitting that Brooklyn – home to the world’s largest Jewish population outside Israel – holds its own

“Our collective voice needs to be heard – and it’ll be heard loud and clear,” he said.
