Question, What kind of yeshiva administration lets these foreign students out at 12am, unaccompanied, unprotected, speaking poor English at best? What were they planning to accomplish, and should each say Ha Gomel after coming back alive? What do the yeshivah rules say about this and were they enforced, now and for the future? . Are the parents aware of these excursions? That “black Hebrew” was only half way right- ” YES, GET OUT OF THE PARK RIGHT NOW! – go home say krias shema Al a mita, NEGELVASSER, get up early for Friday Seder, davening, change the world for good,… Read more »

That is a separate question! One should still feel free to go anywhere. He wishes at any time of day or night, without being attacked with this kind of menacing speech, which, luckily did not result in physical action as well.

Speaks truth….

He shouted at the bochurim to get out of the park, and then…

True. GET OUT OF THE PARK. Especially at midnight.

Same was with the country clubs in the 50s and 60s that didnt allow Jews in.

Cuz we shouldn’t have been mixing with them.

Missing your point...

So they deserve to have a knife wielded at them because they where bored and wandering around at night? They weren’t there to mix with anyone they where minding their own business, Think about it…
What if you got attacked while walking home from a farbrengen late at night, do you deserve to get attacked simply because what you did was dangerous? (walking home late at night by yourself) obviously not and your comment is senseless, perhaps you deserve something RM”L because you waste your time on the internet writing these comments? Obviously not.
