Anti-Jew attack in Bondi leaves two in hospital

TWO men remain in hospital with serious injuries after an alleged anti-Semitic attack near Bondi Beach at the weekend.

Five people were injured on Saturday suffering a fractured cheekbone, broken nose, concussion, lacerations and bruising when they were set upon by eight youths on Blair Street.

St Vincent's Hospital spokesman David Faktor said the victims told him the attack was unprovoked and racially motivated.

He said the family was returning from a Jewish Sabbath dinner and did not know their attackers or do anything to incite the violence.

"Any kind of serious unprovoked attack is of great concern but the fact it was racially motivated is all the more concerning," he said.

"It is extremely shocking that an attack like this could happen in Australia let alone in Bondi being such a multi-cultural area."

Two 17-year-old boys were charged with affray and breach of bail.

A man, 23, was charged with affray and granted bail to appear at Waverley Local Court on December 3.
