Hochul directs flags to half-staff in remembrance of lives lost in terrorist attacks against Israel

Gov. Kathy Hochul on Tuesday announced that flags on State buildings will be flown at half-staff indefinitely starting on Wednesday in remembrance of the lives lost as a result of the recent terrorist attacks against the State of Israel.

“New York stands in solidarity with Israel and the Jewish community,” Gov. Hochul said. “I am proud to serve as Governor of the State that is home to the largest Jewish population outside of Israel, and I am committed to doing everything in my power to make sure that this community is supported and protected today and every day.”
