Assemblywoman Nily Rozic Unveils Display of Hostages Kidnapped from Israel

Israeli-Born Legislator Calls for Community Leaders Around New York and Country to Follow Suit and Set a Similar Example

Queens, NY — Assemblywoman Nily Rozic unveiled a display on the storefront of her Queens district office calling attention to the over 230 hostages who were kidnapped from Israel on October 7th. The hostages – ranging in age from infants to senior citizens – were kidnapped by Hamas during their brutal and inhumane terror attack. Many were kidnapped from their homes or the Nova Music Festival, an event celebrating unity and love.

“This should not be controversial: every single hostage must be released,” said Assemblywoman Rozic. “My office will continue to bring attention to the over 230 hostages still being held by Hamas in Gaza, and I urge others to use their platforms to raise awareness until every single one is back home.”

The “KIDNAPPED” posters displayed are part of the #KidnappedFromIsrael guerilla art display. Across the state, there have been incidents of similar posters being ripped down or defaced amid a drastic rise in antisemitic incidents and tensions.

Similarly, the #BringThemHomeNow forum is another coalition that is entirely focused on bringing the hostages home to their families.
