The torch-wielding racists who marched on Charlottesville, Va., two years ago showed the ugly new face of the far right. Their deadly rally shocked the nation into paying attention to how racial hatred could turn into organized violence.

But if 2017 was the wake-up call, 2019 was the year the call was answered.

A man attacked Hanukkah celebrants who had gathered at the home of a Hasidic rabbi in a New York City suburb on Saturday, stabbing and wounding five people before fleeing.

A suspect was later apprehended in New York City, officials said.

Five patients with stab wounds, all of them Hasidic Jews, were taken to local hospitals, according to the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council for the Hudson Valley region. The group said two of them were in critical condition.
