An anti-Israel mob descended upon Congregation Bnai Yeshurun in Teaneck, NJ, this week during a fundraising event for a group called Zaka, which recovers the bodies of terrorism victims.

Members of the Jewish community found out that the protest was happening and came out in numbers to defend the event and the venue.

The Bergen Record reported:

More than a thousand people demonstrate outside Teaneck synagogue over Israel-Gaza war

Pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian demonstrators faced off near the Congregation Bnai Yeshurun synagogue Monday night during a ceremony that honored victims of the Oct. 7 Hamas attack in Israel.

The event that took place at 8 p.m. was hosted by Zaka, an Israeli search-and-rescue non-government organization that offers humanitarian assistance in response to a terror attack, disaster or accident.

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators had planned a protest outside the synagogue led by Within our Lifetime, a New York-based Palestinian organization.

At around 6 p.m. before the ceremony, more than a thousand Israeli supporters filled the residential streets as they gathered in front of the synagogue to form their own counter-protest.

A rabbi spoke to the crowd saying: “This harassment stops here and tonight. The Jewish community of Teaneck will not stand and let our houses of worship be targeted again and again. They will not run us out of town.”

The pain and tension from the war between Israel and Hamas continues to be on full display in our own backyard.

On Monday night, there were clashes at a New Jersey synagogue as pro-Palestinian demonstrators showed up in protest against an event.

The anger continues to rise between Palestinians and Israelis in Teaneck. The latest incident happened Monday at the middle of a residential corner outside of the Congregation Bnai Yeshurun Temple.

“Proud of the community, proud of the community. They are doing a great job and I stand behind Israel 100%,” resident Steve Segal said.

Police were out in full force, keeping both sides apart and safe. But at times, things did get out of hand and officers were quick to sweep protesters from both sides off the streets.

“It’s a sad world at the moment. Our country has been turned upside down, but our country will come through it,” Segal said.

Things got a little crazy.
