Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) urged New York’s police commissioner to increase police presence in the vicinity of local synagogues over the Shavuot holiday. Prayer and learning on Shavuot, which begins Thursday at sunset, takes place throughout the night and therefore Jews traveling to and from synagogue should receive police protection, Weiner said.
