Bronx councilmembers OK legislation to combat Jewish hatred, but some Brooklyn pols reject the resolution


All nine Bronx City Councilmembers voted last week to pass a resolution to make April 29 “End Jew Hatred Day,” but it didn’t come without controversy — six progressive Brooklyn electeds didn’t give the motion the green light. 

The legislation was put forth by Brooklyn District 48 representative Inna Vernikov, a Republican, and co-sponsored by 13 other councilmembers — including Eric Dinowitz, a Jewish Democrat who also serves as the chair of the New York City Council Jewish Caucus.
