A total of 5 antisemitic cases occurred in Chicago over the weekend, in a span of just 24 hours, wherein 2 Jewish institutions, 2 Jewish stores, and one Jewish man were targeted.

The Hanna Sacks Bais Yaakov, and Congregation F.R.E.E. were the two Jewish institutions targetted in a recent chain of antisemitic attacks in Chicago. Meanwhile, two Jewish stores had their windows smashed- which included the Tel Aviv Bakery, and Kol Tuv Kosher Supermarket.

What’s worse is that in just 24 hours, a frum man walking on the street was attacked and bloodied on Sunday night in an unprovoked incident. The victim was walking near W. Devon Ave. and N. Sacramento Ave. when he was attacked by an unknown male. Hatzolah treated the victim at the scene for trauma.

According to sources, the Chicago Police took a suspect into custody for the assault around two hours later, and detectives are investigating the other incidents, which haven’t been proven to be hate crimes as yet.
