New York Police Accused of Targeting Jewish Homes Using COVID Compliance Checks…

Comrades, there is a rather disturbing video reportedly showing New York police attempting to enter a Rockland County, New York, private residence while concerned about COVID compliance rules being violated.

In the video the police officer says he was responding to a complaint about cars parked in front of the house and noticed that a gathering of more than ten people was underway inside, which he calls “an issue.”  The owner appears to be an Orthodox Jew and disagrees that “a few friends” coming together is an issue requiring police intervention. Weird.

Question: Is it illegal in New York to have more than ten people in your house?

        A ‘Minyan’ for Reform Jews requires 10 adults over the age of 13.
        For Orthodox and most Conservative Jews, all of those adults must be males over the age of 13.

        Certain prayers and rituals; e.g. Torah reading require a Minyan present.

        Which means Cuomo is shutting down Jewish religious ceremonies in the privacy of one’s home.
        When Cuomo was not satisfied just with shutting down Orthodox and Conservative Jewish Temples he is now going after services in private homes.

        It reminds me of when Catholicism was illegal in England, priest holes, or when the Inquisition went after people praying in their homes.
        Or when Hitler’s minions went after the Jewish and Gypsies everywhere they could.

        Cuomo is not far behind the most intolerant periods of history.

          The relationship between the Trump family and the Orthodox Jewish community goes back to Fred Trump. He looked past the funny clothes and odd customs: they were good friends, respect was mutual. He went to weddings and funerals, took our President with him. When PT spoke to a gathering in Florida, he could’ve been talking to his own family.

      What is wrong with those police officers? Entirely ignorant of history? They showed up at this home in a platoon. Some of them appeared to be enjoying the exercise of muscling their way into that home and taking charge of the people who were gathered there. My stomach turned to watch Jews defending themselves and their activity against the police intrusion – in an American city – while being bullied by American police who I am certain would say they “were just following orders”.

        There are severe oddities in the claims by police in NYC.

        Shabbat starts at Sundown on Friday and ends at sundown on Saturday.
        During Shabbat, no observant Jew uses work saving devices like cars, buses or taxis.

        On Shabbat every Orthodox Jew walks anywhere and everywhere.
        Quite a few Conservative Jews are just as strictly observant.

        Nor would they “drive” somewhere in NYC where they would have to leave their car as they walked home later that night. That is something about NYC to which all residents pay attention.

        All of those “cars” parking on that street were people returning home before sundown or after work.
        That excuse given by the Police is false and likely given to them by their superiors ignorant of Jewish religious law.

          This incident was in Rockland County. Is that still in a very urban area? My impression was that it was like a smaller city, perhaps more suburban, where cars would more likely be used. But, if their practice is to walk everywhere, then maybe large group of cars isn’t a “tip off” method. If the large group of cars isn’t tipping off the Police, and the Orthodox Jews walk to the house at night, it seems that it would be more difficult for the Police to catch them violating the “edict.” Could there be something more sinister about how the Police find out?

        Ok, not NYC. Different neighborhood. But it is Cuomo Country nevertheless, and the tyranny is spreading. This incident suggests that Son of Mario is digging in and now mandating that local magistrates make examples of some, for the “education” of others.

        The usurpation of New Yorkers’ constitutional rights is spreading – along with those of the rest of us who are also closeted against our will in other states.

        We are talking about the protected 1st Amendment Right to Assemble. I did not check to see if this occurred yesterday / today, but if so, it was the Sabbath. The freedom to gather for worship of these Jews was violated, along with the police state intrusion into the host’s home, based on a neighbor’s report of too many cars parked outside the residence. Someone was probably being assaulted, robbed, and/or killed in the street down the next block.

Which is itself an ancient anti-Semitic trope.

      2. The Orthodox support Trump at over 80 percent. They are concentrated in particular sections of Brooklyn in enough numbers to have their own representatives, which makes them a thorn in the side of the one-party state.

The Orthodox (Hasidic) upset all that by dressing up like people from 18th century Poland, speaking Yiddish and doing their funny dances. The libs also want Israel to function not as a normal country or, God forbid, a Jewish country, but as some sort of international showcase to make American Jews look better in their own eyes and in the eyes of non-Jewish Americans.

    Ten, maybe or maybe not coincidentally, is the number of men required for a quorum to have an Orthodox prayer service. Enforcing “ten or more” means they can’t gather to pray.

    No way the nonreligious Jewish leftist majority in New York cares or will stand up against this. Their true religion is Prog, which creates a bizarro-world in which the Orthodox Jews are the heretics. Similar to the current Pope vs traditional Catholicism.

    Jewish Congregations Sue New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo For Hot Spot Lockdowns

    Cuomo issued an executive order on Oct. 6 limiting the size of religious gatherings in COVID-19 hot spots to 25% capacity or a maximum of 10 people in red-zones, the Associated Press (AP) reported. His order came one day after he threatened to shut down synagogues. (RELATED: Orthodox Jewish Community Protests Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s New Coronavirus Lockdown Restrictions)

    The suit alleges Cuomo’s executive order “is blatantly anti-Semitic, creating religious-observance based color coded ‘hot-spot’ zones directed towards particular Jewish communities,” and “specifically singles out the orthodox Jewish community in what has proven to be the latest extension of Governor Cuomo’s streak of anti-Semitic discrimination.”

    Massachusetts has been playing this game as well, though a bit more subtly and not in a pattern targeting Orthodox Jews.

    When a cell of Subversive Citizens acts against the Interests of the Commonwealth by holding a “party” it is not only broken up by the police; the Boston media also makes sure to shame the Undesirable Behavior by highlighting such Irresponsible Actions on the evening news. The most blatant example occurred back in August, when CBS 4 breathlessly reported “Social Hosting” charges were being filed against the parents of a house party involving several teenagers.

    Having regrettably spent a majority of my life in the Commonwealth but never having heard of “Social Hosting” charges before, I wondered if our glorious Party, excuse me, I mean Legislature, had issued, I mean passed, a new series of Covid-inspired mandates to ensure our communal health and safety. Alas, I was disappointed as no such mandates had been handed down, at least not under the title of “Social Hosting.” Social Hosting, in fact, is the technical legal term for long established statute. In common English it translates to the act of providing alcohol to minors.

    Now, I am certain this choice of phrasing was a coincidence. Surely it did not occur to CBS 4 that using the phrase “Social Hosting” rather than “supplying alcohol to minors,” as it has done every other time when reporting on such stories in the past, would cause people to think there are new legal penalties for hosting a house party. Surely CBS 4 would not purposefully mislead the public by creating fear, intimidation, and public shame around the perfectly legal act of peaceful assembly in a private residence by using ambiguous language in order to conflate peaceful assembly in a private residence with the crime of supplying alcohol to minors. Surely CBS 4 is not spreading propaganda in order to gaslight its audience.

    And most surely of all, focusing on this story and framing it within the context of Covid had nothing to do with impending start of school, and had nothing to with the insufferable campaign being waged by the teachers’ unions to keep the schools closed, which has nothing to do with the narratives being pushed out by the Biden campaign.

    That would imply this is all being coordinated for specific political objectives. And that is just wrong think, comrades.

    In answer to your question, Sundance: Yes, I believe it is “illegal” to have a gathering of more than 10 people indoors. That is why we couldn’t have wakes and funerals. That is why we had all those insipid “drive by” birthday caravans, with celebrants tooting their horns as they drove past their relatives’ houses. I saw them for children, and even one for a man in his 90’s. This could’ve been his last birthday. Nomatter. Imagine the heartbreak of the elderly, the sick and dying in assisted living, nursing homes and hospitals, who are not permitted to be with loved ones.

    Once summer came people flocked outside, so this wasn’t as noticeable an issue. But I read that a catering hall (another dying, ‘non-essential’ NY business) was recently fined 12k for hosting a birthday celebration.

    The Hasidics ain’t having none of it. I’m rooting for them. Once Amy Coney Barrett is seated on the Supreme Court, and I hope these Hasidic jews sue the snot out of Commo and his jackboots.

    Yes, things are about to get real in Commo’s New York. Not all police are playing that game, either. We’ve had rallies of thousands to support our police on Long Island.

      Point to the law, passed by the New York State legislature and signed by the Governor of New York, which states that gatherings of ten or more people are prohibited.

      If no so such law exists, then any prohibition against gatherings of ten or more people in the State of New York is unenforceable. Current prohibition is being enforced under the aegis of the Governor’s emergency powers, which were not intended to last for indefinite periods of time. Therefore any enforcement is in murky legal waters if not outright illegal itself.

      I know you are not supporting “pro-illegal” side of the argument, but there is a difference between a “law” and a “mandate” and there are far too many people for whom such distinctions are becoming blurred. The longer the “mandates” continue to stay in effect unquestioned and unchallenged as the “new normal”, those distinctions will become more blurred and have larger consequences.

      For example, is a “virtual quorum” still a quorum? Can Congress be considered in session via Zoom? Does that change the Executive’s recess powers? Sounds like an outlandish hypothetical, but here’s another question no one bothered to ask: should Senator Harris have been allowed to participate in the ACB hearings from her office? Was that even legal?

        Doesn’t matter. On the books or not. It’s 100% unconstitutional to issue Nazi-like orders to limit the People’s ability to assemble or have any gathering they wish on private property.

        Just because it’s passed into “law” doesn’t make it constitional. We found that out recently here in Michigan.

          Once we have a functioning Supreme Court, we *should* be able to nip this in the bud. This is unconstitutional.

          The commies are not only attacking our liberties, they are messing with freedom of religion.

          I won’t go back to church because the marxists have imposed social distance and wearing those infernal masks. They have openly promoted open borders Globalism, as well.

          I already converted from Catholic to Lutheran. Maybe I should’ve converted to Hasidic Jew. At the very least, I admire these people for having the courage of their convictions.

    The picture shows police inside the house. If they were not invited in they have no business being in the house unless they have a warrant. We still have the right to be secure in our homes!

      Police cannot enter a residence or search your car without a warrant. Period. And it usually will take hours and a lot of paper work to get one.

      It’s really unfortunate that we are all supportive of the police…yet when THEY try to violate our civil rights then it’s a problem. And at that point they can FO.

      They probably answered the door. Once the door is opened and the cops see something, they can enter. It’s like a traffic stop. Once you are pulled over for one infraction, they can search the car too.

      This has been going on for months at universities. If police see “too many” cars they break up the gathering. I know one student who had troopers at the door of her residence, ordering her to quarantine for two weeks, because they spied her NY license plates in the driveway. This was out of state, off campus housing.

    1. This “hotspot,” or more correctly “cluster zone” is 35 miles north of New York City, NOT part of DeBlasio’s domain. It is a suburban area that has been identified by Cuomo’s tracking … tied to some unpublished rate of positive case loads.
    2. Cuomo enacted (late September, effective Oct 9) yet another rule, restricting social gatherings within cluster zones to 10 or fewer people.
    3. This zone is an area inhabited by Hasidim, often in multi-family apartment dwellings.
    It appears the police made their “unacceptable group size” determination by the number of cars parked near the building.

    When are we going to throw this tyrant out of office and let our police get back to regular order?

      This is so very upsetting for me
      Jewish familes are large.
      Purposely.
      Having 10 or more children is not unknown in Hasidic and Orthodox families (to replace those Jewish souls murdered by the Nazis)
      Like Amish families but more so
      Often extended family members live in one apartment
      So this Gestapo raid is BS
      And you’re right-Jews dont drive or shop on Shabbat-they WALK to the synagogue and may go to friends for lunch after synagogue
