    Why Wasn't this Advertised with More Notice

    1) Why wasn’t this meeting advertised with more advance notice…many people do not know the precinct meeting is every month 2) Why isn’t precinct meeting a the public school like it used to be ? 3) The public did not know that all the Machers would be there…the public could have asked tougher questions 4) ELI SLAVIN – where is the federal funds for more cops…or to fund SHMIRA, SHOMRIM, ..and for more cameras. – its all about money – Anti – Semitic attacks are federal civil rights issue – its federal and Yvette Clarke is the federal representative for… Read more »

    I feel like this has become a circus. Every couple of weeks the same people to gather to condemn the violence and antisemitism attacks that have occurred recently. Its the same lip service time and again. We need change.

    To the leaders our our community it is time you step down and allow the next generation to lead. Enough is enough.

    When you get PUBLIC FUNDS, you will never bite the hand that feeds you…that’s why there will be no tough questions to elected officials on how much elected officials will ask for in their BUDGET FUNDING FOR MORE COPS WALKING BEAT/ SECURITY CAMERAS S H O W M E T H E B U D G E T M O N E Y O R S H O W Y O U R S E L F T H E D O O R

    You expect the democratic politicians to allow the police to take action. What planet are you on. The democrats from the mayor down wants the police to go easy on the criminals. This is the liberal lefty looney Democratic Party.

    Do they have enough police to patrol the streets 24/7? CH is big now

    CH Jewish community spread for more streets now , it’s probavly not only 71 PCT but 77 and maybe more as well why they were not included in the meeting as well ….

    Drones are good idea to cover more areas but regular walking patrols like it was few years ago make more sense …

    Thanks for the meeting and can u publish any accomplishments from previous meetings as well so we can feel more safe in CH

    The police know that all those people in the crowd are politicians themselves.
    Why weren’t the people invited?
    No one wants the community there. Its all SHEKER

    The reason that voting is connected to this:

    If most people in CH don’t vote, the politicians aren’t afraid that they’ll be voted out because of these problems and thus will do almost nothing about it. The only way to change that is if everyone in CH starts voting.

    The DA will let them go free

    He’s not concerned that the Jews will vote against him because they don’t vote at all.

    If they did, the elected officials would give this the consideration it deserves.

    Jewish Morality ?

    Perhaps more disappointing than the crime against Jewish persons is that “Jewish advocates” have not called for regular elections of the CHJCC and public meetings for discourse. Why not host public meetings at different shuls each month ?

    The only thing separating CH from totalitarianism is the electronic Jewish newspapers and the comments section.

    I’m a single girl living in CH. On Friday nights, I often have to walk back from meals alone. I know it’s difficult to walk me home when you’d rather turn in for the night, but please think about our safety and walk us home. Thank you!

    Was this just a photo op?

    Was this just a photo op? ‘Sure looks like it. Was there any discussion about the revolving door at the NYPD even when these perps ARE apprehended? More police presence is surely needed, but also, if the word on the street is that you’ll get out without any serious charges, it emboldens the perps. What part of that should even need explaining at this point in time????? Forgive my cynical tone here, but puh-leeze: a meeting with the same old same old “activists”? A few of the people in this plethora of photos are legitimately activists, but MOST are just… Read more »

    Putting more police on the streets might be somewhat of a deterrent but since – for whatever reason – the police in Crown Heights do not seem to be inclined to pursue criminals that have attacked our community – and sometimes show themselves Not to be a friend of our community – it is not the solution.

    The Street Naming was because of many years of service to the Jewish community, which included assisting securing grants and money programs assisting Jewish disabled kids and Jewish disabled adults. The effort at the time could be described as trailblazing.

    And when I go to vote I see many residents of the community. We don’t have the numbers even if every single member of the community voted. But we CAN have a voice if we spoke up as a united front and took ACTION.

    of the rooftop Koreans during the LA riots. Although the current situation in CH is nowhere near as bad as the situation during the LA riots, there is still a similar need for individuals in the community to take personal responsibility and action to ensure security and safety of other Jews in the community. I’m not advocating violence, but rather for a sense of responsibility to be taken. It would take pressure off the NYPD who are being pressured to do what they can’t, but would mean that they would have to admit to not having control… which they’ll never… Read more »

    Point # 1 – “First, Jewish law categorically prohibits public humiliation of another and suggests that public shame is the equivalent of murder (Baba Metzia 68b). Second, this principle is extended from the living to the dead. Immanuel ben Shlomo, 13th century Hebrew poet who lived in Rome, warned: “De mortuis nil nisi bonum” (Do not speak ill of the dead). Clearly, the dead are not able to defend themselves.” (The Jewish News of Northern California, April 16, 1999) Point # 2 – “The post-Talmudic sages pronounced a cherem or ban on one who speaks ill of the dead.
