Video: An Act Of Solidarity

In the above video, posted on Youtube by urpolarbear, a group of non-Jewish men, women and children from Crown Heights paid tribute to Leiby Kletzky. The Crown Height Jewish Softball League meets every Tuesday and Thursday night. Yesterday evening, players from the league joined the group in releasing blue and white balloons into the sky between games.

League member Yitzi Cole told CBS that people from the community had come to “show solidarity and support following the Borough Park boy’s brutal murder.”

One woman said, “We just want to show our love for the little boy that you guys lost because we as parents also feel what you feel in the loss,” one woman said. She added that she wanted to “show her children how to love openly and with no regard to color or race.”
