Rabbis Recite Kaddish, Jewish Mourning Prayer, For Eric Garner, Later Arrested In NYC Protest

Four prominent New York rabbis were arrested during protests against police brutality and racial injustice on Thursday night, along with more than 200 others taken into custody throughout the city.

Rabbis Sharon Kleinbaum, Jill Jacobs, David Rosenn and Shai Held, along with Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, joined thousands of other protesters who took to the streets Wednesday and Thursday evenings in opposition to a grand jury's decision not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner.

Rabbi Jacobs told HuffPost by email that she and others arrived at the police station at roughly 11:30 p.m. and were held until 5:15 a.m. Friday morning. Despite the sleepless night, Jacobs said the protest was crucial to her as "a religious act" to highlight the "dignity of every single human being."

"Rabbis and all Jews need to stand up and say that every single person is a creation in the divine image -- that black lives matter," Jacobs said. "We put our bodies on the line to show how crucial it is that the systems meant to protect us do protect all of us."

Come on, agitating the black thugs is why they are there.  Jews hate the other races on earth.
