Dov Hikind (born June 30, 1950) is an American politician in the state of New York. He is a Democratic New York State Assemblyman. Hikind is an Orthodox Jew representing Brooklyn's Assembly district 48. He has held this position since 1983 and has been very vocal about racial profiling, terrorism, and antisemitism in his district, which includes Borough Park, home to one of the largest Orthodox Jewish communities outside of Israel. Hikind hosts a weekly talk radio show every Saturday night, which discusses various local, national, and international concerns.
Hikind is married and has three children.
Hikind is a Democrat and a member of the Assembly of New York. He endorsed Mayor Bloomberg for mayor the first two times, but endorsed Bill Thompson for Mayor in 2009. Hikind has broken ranks with his party before, most notably in his endorsement of Republican candidates George Pataki for governor in 1994, and George W. Bush for president. His endorsements have drawn criticism from Democratic voters who question his political stance as Hikind has grown increasingly conservative. Hikind has been a guest in many right-wing radio show programs. Hikind has expressed interest in the special election for the New York's 9th congressional district seat vacated by Anthony Weiner; Hikind does not expect the Democrats to nominate him and is considering running as a Republican.
