At events like these your absence is keenly felt. You were always at the front lines organizing protests in Manhattan, in Washington or in 770–wherever, whenever and whatever was needed.

WHERE WERE YOU???!!!

WHERE WERE YOU???!!!

where was every person in this community???? we post wonderful words on facebook, share videos and pictures on tisha b’av but when our brothers and sisters and OUR OWN LIVES and our childrens world is at stake we show up

advertisement wasn't good

advertisement wasn't good

With such a large community we should have had a few thousand people.
The speakers spoke well. hashem yerachem. We need to be more involved keep calling the elected officials.

There was zero advertizing

This event was so badly publicized. No-one knew about it. Why wasn’t this advertised all over the place?

Surprised at COL that the ‘nature karta’ got 11 pictures in this article. That’s exactly what their looking for ; attention. They should get zero attention, their plight is ridiculous and their so rude and disrespectful!

For all those asking why this event wasn’t better advertised. I hope you all at least made 1 call to each of the following. 1) Yvette Clarke 202-225-6231. 2) Kirsten Gillibrand 202-224-4451 and stay tuned for better organized events.

I enjoyed the rally very much

I specially enjoyed hearing Senator Jesse Hamiltons words, the emcee David Greenfield and Dov Hikind. But my favorite was Devorah Halbershtam! She was terrific. Would be nice to post videos. Great speeches!

I glanced with interest at the opposition on the other side of Kingston protesting our protest against Iran nuclear expansion. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a rally in favor of nuclear disaster until now. It’s one thing to hate and abuse your Jewish neighbors for no reason, that kind of irrationality we are used to. It’s another to protest in favor of being nuked by a sworn enemy of the US. Sad… and yet so comical! Do they even know what they are protesting on behalf of, other than that it is something the Jewish community is opposing?.. Only… Read more »

Never again??
Guest
Never again??

Most of the Jewish world stood silent as 6 million perished …. And we still have survivors…. If no one cares today what will be when they are all gone.

Congratulations, Jesse,  Dov and David. But same on…

Congratulations, Jesse, Dov and David.

BUT SHAME ON US!!!

No advertising?? Are you kidding??

Every home received a letter and postcard. Thousands of text messages Face book, etc., etc.

And a measly 200 people show up. Of which 100 happened to come out of the subway.

A real busha !!!

 NO SPONSORS?????
Guest
NO SPONSORS?????

Why was there no showing fro: JCRC, APAC, Flatbush PAC.

All of the above organizations sponsored Congressman Jeffries event.

I smell a rat.

Broken heart, twice.
Guest
Broken heart, twice.

I came down Kingston Ave. and saw those Neturei Karte Nazis, and my heart fell.

I looked at the crowd attending the rally, and my heart fell even further.

What’s up with us??? Doesn’t anyone care???

Out of close to four thousand families 250 people show up!!!!
The Neturei Nazis had as much of a crowd as the event.

PUSTE MEI-SES, (A BIG ZERO).

Did I miss something? Not one word of action?

Talk, talk, talk, and more talk….

It sounded like a Political Rally….

NOT ONE WORD ACTION!!!!

How about again encouraging the people, to continue reaching out, and calling our senator and congress representatives, keeping the pressure on

Devora Halberstam is the one person who said what was most important. Let’s not make this a Jewish or Israeli problem that is just a distraction. It is a problem for our entire country and the entire world. That’s what all politicians and citizens need to hear.

Nice idea, but without advertising, what’s the point – better to call it a Press Conference rather than a rally – lends more legitimacy to the event.
BUT even more important is mentioning the Rebbe’s words that true peace in the Middle East and the World must originate with a firm Shleimus HaAretz and emphasis on the Sheva Mitvos.

Needed more planning

RE comment # 24I second the motion. - Who orgenized this?

Does anyone think that this crowd NEBACH, would impress any public official, and their staff??

More harm than good was accomplished.

I was told heard through the Grapevine, that a group of “The Young Leadership” put together the “Chasidishe Melave Malka – Rally.

Obviously, there are fewer the 100 young people in Crown Heights.

Sad, very sad……

SHOLOM, SHOLOM, and more SHOLOM.

SHOLOM, SHOLOM, and more SHOLOM.

One thing is for sure, UNITED we stand, DIVIDED, we fall.

Those who understand what I am saying, and have some input, bring together all the parties that may have positive results.

And PLEASE, my intent is for POSITIVE, and not to open up a back and forth for more machlokes, chas v’sholom.

Gut Shabbos.
