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. Speaking… Read more »

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.

Dear Y from CH, (you misspelled your name),

You forgot to mention Global Warming, Save the Whales, and No Justice No Peace……

The goons of the NYPD are only concerned with meeting their ticket quota these guys all live in tony long island and care less for our safety. totally useless.

What happened to posting names? Why is every post anonymous. Wast of posting. Noone takes anonymous posts seriously in Crown Heights. The Rebbe was against it.

To #32: Most people in CH do NOT vote!
December 5, 2018 12:38 pm

I’ve been voting for many years and never see more than a few Jews there (if that).

I'm reminded
December 5, 2018 10:42 am

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 »

I vote
December 5, 2018 10:18 am

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.

the people in these pictures are working diligently to help our community they truly care for the safety, all the naysayers seem to be just jealous. These are the people who represent us to government and the police.

Why wasnt I invited
December 5, 2018 6:06 am

I have a great organisation for the future of our youth….

More police blah blah
December 4, 2018 11:59 pm

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.

December 4, 2018 11:02 pm

You are right, and to #18 our leaders are a joke, they just looking up for themselves

.Save our children, and save our streets.
December 4, 2018 10:40 pm

Save our children – Print plastic shopping bags, with the danger of Opioids.

That’s the Hope & Change from the New Leadership Wanna bees!!!!

Was this just a photo op?
December 4, 2018 10:28 pm

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 »

Let’s get more streets named after our parents!!!!

Let’s get more streets named after our parents!!!!


Small step towards safety
December 4, 2018 9:57 pm

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!

Jewish Morality ?
December 4, 2018 9:50 pm

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 vote and I care about our security
December 4, 2018 9:40 pm

Do you?

December 4, 2018 9:40 pm

7 Member Board of New CHJCC

a) One guy from Shomrim
b) One guy from Shmira
c) One guy fom Hatzolah
d) 2 Men
e) 2 Women

Conflict of interest rules –
1) No one can be the recipient of public funds, or have a non-profit that receives public funds or have a member of their immediate family who receives public funds as an individual or non-profit
2) No one who themselves or their immediate family works in commercial real estate
3) No one who holds an executive position in government
4) No one who eats pork

Why doesn't everyone in CH vote?
December 4, 2018 9:38 pm

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

You don't vote = you have no right to complain
December 4, 2018 9:37 pm

It it your fault they don’t take our community seriously.

The DA will let them go free
December 4, 2018 9:36 pm

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

The reason that voting is connected to this:
December 4, 2018 9:35 pm

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.

No leadership
December 4, 2018 9:28 pm

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

Do they have enough police to patrol the streets 24/7? CH is big now
December 4, 2018 9:06 pm

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

More Volunteer Shomrim on every block.
December 4, 2018 8:41 pm

And pepper spray. No other way to legally defend yourself with no training. They will not arrest these folks who put em in office. Never vote Democrat ever. Look at IL, MI, CA worst crime in the country worst run.

December 4, 2018 8:29 pm

Nothing will change

Beautiful pictures
December 4, 2018 8:19 pm

Again and again taking pictures, but we need action bepohel, not cops hiding in corners to give tickets and not to protect us

Time for change
December 4, 2018 8:11 pm

Enough of this, stop the cover ups start putting officers on the street walking again, let the young leaders in.

December 4, 2018 8:04 pm

I wonder y the Community was not invited and notified about this meeting.
it’s the people who should have the voice. And the victims. its in our hand to make the changes for the Better

What a joke
December 4, 2018 7:47 pm

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.

December 4, 2018 7:35 pm


December 4, 2018 7:28 pm

Drones can outrun PERPS – excellent deterrent

SHOMRIM DRONE – Kipa not included

Never Bite the Hand that Feeds You
December 4, 2018 7:25 pm

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




December 4, 2018 7:02 pm

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.

They will do nothing because CH doesn't vote
December 4, 2018 6:56 pm

So non voting residents can blame themselves.

December 4, 2018 6:13 pm

BS”D Well it wasn’t held in Basil so maybe they are making progress and there is hope, keep it up and push the police to protect us

Why Wasn't this Advertised with More Notice
December 4, 2018 6:03 pm

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 »
