Antisemitic attacks in Jerusalem
Over the years Honenu has represented many victims of antisemitic attacks in Jerusalem. Yeshiva students and hareidi Jews are prime targets due to their clearly recognizable appearance. Prosecuting and convicting assailants is an important deterrence factor. Honenu makes every effort to ensure that all complainants receive a fair judicial process.
