BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Thousands of people rallied on Sunday outside Temple Israel of Boston to support local Jewish students and take a stand against antisemitism.

Student speakers spoke of experiencing a wave of hate since the Hamas attacks in October. "There really is nobody there but ourselves to keep us safe," said one student from Columbia University. "It's dangerous."

Another said he and his friends were recently attacked while on campus at school. 

The rally was hosted by Combined Jewish Philanthropies Center for Combating Antisemitism.

Patriots' owner Robert Kraft sent a message of encouragement and hope to Jewish students.
