Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley on Friday denounced antisemitism and expressed his support for a Brighton rabbi who was repeatedly stabbed in the arm one day earlier.

“We are grateful that Rabbi Shlomo Noginski is recovering from the injuries he suffered as a result of a violent attack yesterday. Violence and hate have no place in our society,” the cardinal wrote in a series of posts on his Twitter account.

Noginski was stabbed eight or nine times around 1:19 p.m. outside the Shaloh House, a Jewish day school on Chestnut Hill Avenue, authorities said. He was reported to be in stable condition at Boston Medical Center on Friday.
