This, by the way — this singling out of religious people, is the very definition of persecution.

Why is your right to infect me with this disease more just than my right to protest a wedding with 10,000 covid super spreaders?

Secret plans helped Brooklyn synagogue pull off massive, maskless wedding

Guests squeezed inside the Yetev Lev temple in Williamsburg for the wedding of a chief rabbi’s grandson.

The synagogue’s stunning willingness to host a potential superspreader event underscores what critics call the Hasidic community’s ongoing disregard and outright defiance of efforts to control the deadly coronavirus, which has killed nearly 25,000 people in New York City.

Ironically, the synagogue’s own president, R’Mayer Zelig Rispler, who openly urged Brooklyn’s Orthodox community to abide by coronavirus safety measures, died of COVID-19 last month at age 70.

New COVID-19 cases in New York City rose to 3.11% Saturday, according to City Hall. There were 1,345 new COVID-19 cases and 118 patients admitted to the hospital with the potentially deadly virus, Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted Saturday.
