At least five people were injured in a stabbing at a Hanukkah lighting ceremony in the New York suburb of Monsey, authorities said late Saturday.
A man reportedly used a machete to attack people attending at a residence in the upstate New York town, which is home to a large Jewish population.
Two of the victims were in critical condition.
No motive was given for the attack by police, but it was widely viewed by officials as anti-Semitic in nature, the latest in a string of attacks on Jews in and around New York City.
The site of the stabbing was identified as the home of Rabbi C.L. Rottenberg, adjacent to the Netzah Yisrael synagogue.
