I am so distressed about an incident that occurred two weeks ago in Crown Heights, where I came from out of town to visit my children and help with a new baby.
As I attempted to park my car on Kingston Avenue in front of the Gombo’s bakery on Friday morning, I was cut off and literally pushed out of my space by a silver 4-door old car, kind of like a Town Car.
I double parked, got out of the car to talk to the Chossid-looking man who did this to me (with a NY license plate starting with the letters CRV)
As I was explaining to him what he did, he became very verbal and called me a “wh—.”
I was shocked and burst into tears. Are my children living with such people? Is that how they educate children in this community?
Here was a person, dressed in Chassidic garb, preparing for the Shabbos, a Chabad Chossid who is supposed to be accepting of all Jews – and instead pushed me away.
I can only say to him – if he is reading this – if you are or call yourself a Lubavitcher and a Chossid of the Rebbe, you should be ashamed of yourself to speak to a woman in such a despicable way…
I doubt you are involved in outreach, because you would not think or treat your fellow Jews searching for the truth in such a way.
Whoever you are or whatever you do, it is you who needs to become a Baal Teshuva – not only me.
A Jewish woman who is one step further from yiddishkeit by a Jewish man who should have kept his mouth shut.
