Among the Jewish organizations that reacted to the incident, the Jewish Democratic Council of America called it “horrifying and inexcusable.”

“Journalists must be able to do their jobs without fear of assault,” the group tweeted. “Jacob, you’re a pillar of the Jewish community. We stand with you, and we demand those responsible be held accountable.”
