Eric Adams gives his “we’re not okay” speech and then allows this!!??

It’s sole purpose is to terrorize and instill fear in our community!

Adams cannot "pull the permit"

Nobody can. This is America and they are entitled to a permit.

Besides, if they’re not blocking traffic they don’t even need a permit. Anyone is entitled to have a march on the sidewalk at any time and there is nothing the police can do about it.

Except in the name of COVID
Or “sanctuary city”
This place is lawless.
The politicians don’t follow the law.
And make up excuses as they go.
They could shut it down in the name of insurrection or wtv other nonsense if they want to. They don’t want to obviously…

they want us to show up to hate Summits
October 26, 2023 11:54 am

We are not dumb
You want us to show up to hate summits and smile for the cameras and pretend we are the best of friends but then you tell us to become invisible….
You are either trying to protect us or you are not…

There is no in between

Why?
October 26, 2023 12:00 pm

Why should we avoid the area? Aderaba, we should show up in large groups. Let them see we will not cower in fear, and we will not disappear

Absolutely!

We should not be afraid!

Ask to deploy troppers here
October 26, 2023 12:19 pm

We should ask the army to come here to protect or cancel this event.
We do not need to live in Fear and hide!

Under what legal authority

WE NEED TO LIVE IN PEACE!!! WE ARE NOT 2nd hand CITIZENS, OUR KIDS ARE NOT KORBAN!!!
we are proud of being JEWISH, we are proud of being Ortodox, We are proud of being CHABAD!!!
We had RIOTS here and we had 9/11 here, enough is enough!!!
Do not tolerate something that is violent

Why do we have to avoid the area
October 26, 2023 12:41 pm

Why are we being told to be afraid. Why are they normalizing that if there is a protest we are in danger.
If one Jew comes near they will get in to a hate frenzy because let’s be honest this is not about protesting about the oppressed this is an excuse for Jew hate .

I agree
October 26, 2023 12:54 pm

How can we make this happen?

It's not right
October 26, 2023 1:09 pm

That they get to have events where we have to worry about

also
October 26, 2023 1:26 pm

the pegisha is this weekend

Who’s bag is that?
October 26, 2023 1:31 pm

If it’s reported there’s a suspicious bag by the event. That might break it up

Not Smart

So you’re willing to be arrested for making a false report or other charges surrounding causing undue panic? Don’t encourage breaking the law.

Are you serious?
October 26, 2023 2:52 pm

Are you kidding me? “Jews should avoid the area”??!!

Is this Gaza, the West Bank or Germany 1930s??!!

Jews should definitely not avoid the area!!! We should come out proud and strong. We will not be scared to walk anywhere in the United States in 2023.

I will definitely show up. I have no fear. If they have a problem with us, let them show the world who they are and we will deal with it accordingly.

We will not fear. We will not cower. We will not hide.

Am Yisrael Chai!

See Shulchan Aruch Siman 329, and related commentaries, including the many discussions by the Lubavitcher Rebbe regarding the matter.

“Afilu al iskei kash vateven…”

We should consult Rabonim. According to the Shulchan Aruch, it may even be permissible to violate Shabbos for such matters.

And there is no invasion. There is NO threat to Jewish lives, so there is no heter to carry arms on Shabbos (if you don’t use the eruv) and no heter to fight them, which will only get you arrested.

Our “good friend “, spoke in Manhattan how he’s hurting big this is not OK. Where are you to condemn this not to allow this to happen a good friend. He’ll remember us when it comes to election but we have to remember he’s not there for us.
they are not our friends we are in Golus!

He can't condemn a peaceful protest

And he certainly can’t stop it from happening. All he can do is station a lot of police there, so that if anyone becomes violent they can arrest them.

Think!
October 26, 2023 11:27 pm

You wanted to be right or smart?
They are murderers. They come in a mass.
There’s no inyan to go there.
We need to do our mission according to the Rebbes instructions.

Think!
October 26, 2023 11:28 pm

Do you want to be smart or righteous?

Golus

There will probably be many non-religious Yidden who will come there to counter-protest. 

There may R”L be Yidden there who actually support the terrorists. 

If so, why are we not going there, in force, to show them our solidarity and bitachon, and to speak to those unguided souls. 

How does it look that we go all over the world to instruct and support Yiddishkeit, 
yet here we are cowering in our homes, in the Rebbe’s shechunah, like golus yidden?

Are we all not shluchim and “Tankistim”?

Tahlucha
October 27, 2023 10:47 am

Why don’t we ALL have a mass tahlucha there, and all sing together Ani Maamin and seder niggunim. Surely, that will drown them out

Thank you Shmira
