Jewish Boy Slapped in Head

A 12 year old Jewish boy was slapped in the head by a black teenager as he stood on Lefferts Avenue on Monday evening.

By COLlive reporter

Two Jewish boys were the victims of a possible bias attack in Brooklyn's Crown Heights neighborhood on Monday at around 7:30 PM.

The 12 and 13 year old Jewish boys were standing on Lefferts Avenue near Brooklyn Avenue, when two African American teenage males walked past them.

As they walked by, one of the African American teens said, "what are u doing over here," and then slapped one of the Jewish boys on the head, causing his yarmulka to fall off, police said.

A police official told COLlive.com the case has been referred to the Hate Crimes Unit as a possible bias incident.

Post the Noahide Laws
BS"D
So sorry this happened!!!
But the Rebbe said more police and more jails are not the solution to our problems! The Rebbe said teach and spread the Noahide laws!!!
So many Gentiles in our neighborhood are ready and want to learn the Noahide laws, yet few of us are willing to teach/advertise the Noahide Laws. Put signs in your business or front lawn. We must flood Crown Heights with awareness of the Noahide Laws!

Don't be a victim
Fight darkness with light.

7 Noahide Laws, not violence, protests, or negative media.

Demonstrate kindness and peace, share the 7 Noahide Laws on social media.

Be grateful to be Yidden, not pompous; and lead by example.

I Agree with #9,#11
I give out the 7 for 70 Noahide Card when Traveling in a Uber Car. They appreciate it. www.7for70.com
I also believe this was and is the Last Mivtzah the Rebbe introduced, and will be the last Mitzvah to finally bring Moshiach Now!!! the World needs to be Ready!!!
We also need more Cops and Patrol on the Streets during the day and especially at NIGHT!!!

saw a group of them on Monday roaming on Kingston....
looking for trouble. saw they bothered a shop owner, who whisked them away. i watched that they had done "nothing" but were clearly looking for trouble. being anti-semitic is way more common than we realize. it's like a given that most of the population is, but have no real reason to back it up. they need an education. how do you educate an ignoramous.

These wild teens really looking for troubles , let their community keep them busy and off the streets ... maybe City can offer them free activities....

7 laws Card
To #9, 11, & 12.

If you folks are really interested in 7 Mizva card that really works.. I created one who's agenda is hidden, but just states
"check out my new Rap" .It gives the "URL" which takes them to the RAP song---which is imbedded in the website "Ask Noah.com" If you are really serious about your valid concerns, you can email "auddoc770@gmail.com"

Perspective
What they did is clearly wrong, knocking off his kippa, but this sounds like it's being blown up way out of proportion.
