"The New York family grieves today in the wake of yet another anti-Semitic act of violence - the 13th in New York State alone since December 8th.
"This was a blatant act of domestic terrorism that sought to inflict violence, incite hate and generate fear. Out of an abundance of caution, I am directing State Police to increase patrols and security in Orthodox Jewish neighborhoodsacross New York State.
"Hostility based on religion, race, creed, immigration status is an American cancer that is spreading throughout the body politic. In New York, we will never tolerate such hate and hostility in any form, and we will put an end to this cancer not just through our words, but through our actions."
