The Hasidic synagogue barred from holding a public wedding in Brooklyn over fears it would attract 10,000 people says the unwarranted attacks forced it to scrap the planned celebration to avoid a paparazzi event.
The Congregation Yetev Lev DSatmar was served an order Friday night from New York state barring Mondays planned public wedding in Williamsburg of a grandson of its grand rabbi, Zalman Leib Teitelbaum.
But the synagogue hit out at the order, saying it had taken special steps to ensure the wedding complied with coronavirus guidelines but nobody verified our plans before attacking us.
The unwarranted attacks on this event, originated by those besmirching the community, are detached from the facts, the synagogues secretary, Chaim Jacobowitz...
Unlike the sea of worshippers and guests suggested by officials, only a small circle of close family members would have been attending the key sections of the wedding, and the rest of the community would only be able to participate for a short period of time, Jacobowitz insisted.
The greeting cue would have been controlled in accordance with the social distancing regulations. The proper arrangements were in place to achieve that, the statement added.
Now, the publicity over the states order as well as expected mass turnout has forced the family to scrap the original plans.

Go ahead and have the wedding at Times Square. Dare NYPD to arrest 10,000 wedding guests.
Elections have consequences.

“Is man really capable of altering the course of an infectious disease through crowd control?”
Altering the wording a bit, you get “Is man really capable of altering the course of climate change through CO2 emissions control?”
But it always seems to come down to motives centered around power and money. The answer to the questions never really seems to matter.
Vote Democrat Less.
Obviously anti semitism.
Reminds me, Satmar leaders endorsed Hillary last time as part of a pardon deal. As I recall, Satmar neighborhoods voted for Trump anyway.
Your memory is long and accurate.
Proofreading is a lost art these days at any media outlet. It's queue, you idiots.
We don’t want or need a stinking 10k wedding. These selfish people will shut down ny again. The rules are for everyone but them.
Cuomo is an asshole who thinks he’s the rightful King of the North.
“We dont want or need a stinking 10k wedding.”
I agree but wish the same standard would be applied to the losers congregating for the protests; that is the grounds for complaint from many people.
