More homeless shelters coming to ch

Check the homeless shelter in Albany and clarkson

CH Stores should install those red panic button behind the counter, that automatically alerts and calls the NYPD, Shmira and Shomrim.

It’s pretty cheap to install and there are almost a dozen local Lubavitcher owned low voltage / video camera companies that can install these panic buttons. Look into it.

But most important is to check the Mezuzahs.

Unless I missed it, because I never heard of this new bagel shop.

The owner of Albany Bagel should arrange to COLLIVE one of those beautiful welcome articles for this business, with many pictures, store details and the hours the store is open to inform the Crown Heights community about this new Kosher bagel store.

This company put the metal store gates on about half the stores on Kingston Avenue.
Highly recommended.

Funny how these hate crimes..

Keep happening from those who say they are oppressed. Behaving like human beings in public would go along way to improving their own status in the world.

they’re behaving as humans, as they think appropriate. they don’t just say they’re oppressed, they’re conditioned to believe they are, and that they’re entitled, etc. we’re all conditioned into a certain belief system which we consider right. if we want everyone around us to consider what we consider right, as right, it’ll take at least one full generation of indoctrination of common-definition-of-right

To hear a member of a frum community say what you say here breaks my heart. I have a thought that I hope you will think about regarding both yourself and the man who committed the robbery at Albaby Bagel. Did you ever actually hear that man say that he is oppressed? If you did, I would invite you to engage in conversation with him. if you never did hear him say that, I invite you to consider why it is that when you are talking about one specific man and one specific crime perpetrated by that man you bring… Read more »

Pro crown heights Businesses

If he is arrested - will be out in an hour
January 19, 2023 11:54 am

Police dont want to be bothered. If they come an hour late they wont have to arrest anyone. Anyone arrested for robbery is set loose immediately so why bother

So crazy!! This crazy group of people are ruining our community!! You never see Jews come and attack blacks like this! Enough we are sick of this!!

Dear Sara,

It is not about black vs. Jew.

It is simply people on the lower socioeconomic ladder that can end up behaving in this reprehensible manner.

In order to fix this we must realize this is the case and show love and humanity to our black and gentile neighbors. This way they will feel a sense of responsibility to elevate and empower those who are disenfranchised.

Blessings,
Moshe A.

ah of course

That’s right. Never

Read though carefully what I wrote and think about it.

Do we need a mass protest at the mayor's office?
January 19, 2023 3:12 pm

Or perhaps at the local precinct? That is the way other communities react and it gets them news coverage and raises general awareness. Because we don’t do anything — and we keep voting in the people (Dems) who do not respond to our concerns, the city government does not respond in a meaningful way.

This was written before noticing the article on the new police recruits. Maybe it’s not such a great idea. Will all those new police officers be assigned to the 71st precinct? How many will be walking the streets of Jewish Crown Heights? Will it be enough to make a real difference?

All owners must ensure that no one is left at the front of stores alone. There must always be at least two workers in the front together at all times. Or a security guard in the store.

you must be a very young person if you think “a generation” will make this activity disappear. this kind of harmful behavior is more than one generation old and is fed by an upbringing that teaches ” the whole world, especially the jews, owe me.” it won’t stop unless the victimization attitude is discouraged, better still, . regarded as a loser’s attitude.
