With tensions high between Orthodox Jews and New York officials, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio expressed regret Tuesday for how he handled a large Hasidic funeral in the pandemics early days.
Back in April, after a large funeral for a local rabbi in Brooklyn drew thousands of Orthodox Jews into the streets of Williamsburg, de Blasio visited the scene himself and called out the Jewish community. His tweet was widely criticized and damaged what had been a relatively close relationship between the mayor and the citys Orthodox community.
Now, with Orthodox neighborhoods again among the citys virus hotspots and residents chafing at restrictions imposed to curb the diseases spread, de Blasio says he regrets what he said and how he said it.
I look back now and understand there was just more dialogue that was needed, de Blasio said during a press conference Tuesday. I certainly got very frustrated at times when I saw large groups of people still out without masks but I think more dialogue would have been better so I certainly want to express my regret that I didnt figure out how to do that better.
The comments came in response to a question about a call he held with Orthodox leaders from Brooklyn and Queens Monday night, which he said was meant as a reset...

That is very insulting.
If NYS is really in play, Kaiser Wilhelm, you’re gonna regret it even more after Election Day...
A Democrats says he made a mistake? He regrets past actions? Since when do Democrats ever say they were wrong about anything????
When they think Trump is gonna win by a landslide and it looks like they may even lose the House...
States, after all, can’t print money.
I can’t imagine that Trump could win NY, but their politicians do not do well at all a constituent satisfaction. I know upstate NY has a lot of conservatives, but NYC libtards seem to routinely practice self-flagellation.
After the last nine months, NYC may finally have seen the light.
“De Blasio ‘regrets’ criticism of hasidic funeral”
RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT! And he takes full responsibility for his actions.
OH WAIT! I guess he can’t take full “responsibility for his actions” unless he apologizes first. Democrats got rules ya know.
That’s a parody of Wilhelm’s call. Pencil-neck Schiff can speculate on a call he never heard, so can we.
Kaiser Wilhelm De Blasio won’t have a funeral; they’re going to flush him into the toxic sludge of the East River.
Why flush? It might clog and then you’ll need to call a plumber. Just dump him off the Brooklyn Bridge.
For the sake of us all, I hope so.
NY Democrats (especially Jews):
Stop being the schlamozzle to DeBlasio’s schlemiel.
Bill deBasio, fka Warren Wilhelm. This Jew hating scumbag BDShole changed his name because it sounded too “3rd reichish”. Hey a sleazebag politician’s gotta do what a skeazebag politician’s gotta do to shore up the Jewish vote
He regrets that his mask slipped and that everyone now knows he is an elitist Nazi POS.
“...there just might be enough of a Blexit and Jexodus effect to put NY in play.” It’s all in play.

NYC is not seeing any light.
If the Dems even suspect a suspicion that NY is in play, they’ll have to expend resources to shore it up. Same with CA. Same with IL. So even if these states still sing the blues, for the red wave it’s good news.
