The state is increasing security measures during the Jewish holidays amid a string of hate crimes.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has directed police to increase security measures near synagogues and religious centers during the Jewish High Holidays.
In a statement the governor said in part, "We will not allow the cowards who contributed to the recent rash of hateful acts against the Jewish community and other groups to intimidate or divide us. I want to assure our Jewish brothers and sisters that New York stands united with them."
