Hasidic Superspreader Nightmare: Thousands at Secret COVID Maskless Wedding

We can only hope everyone is well


Shocking new video shows a Hasidic synagogue in New York City hosting thousands of people for the wedding of the head rabbi’s grandson in defiance of COVID-19 regulations.

Plans for the Nov. 8 event were made completely in secret: Neither city officials, who nixed a 10,000-person Hasidic wedding last month, nor the firehouse next door knew of the event, according to the New York Post.

Footage depicts a packed crowd in the temple, max capacity 7,000, cheering, singing, and dancing without masks to celebrate Yoel Teitelbaum, grandson of Satmar Grand Rabbi Aaron Teitelman.

New York City has limited indoor religious services to 50 percent capacity and advises participants to wear masks and not to sing. Der Blatt, a Yiddish publication associated with the Satmar sect, reported on Nov. 13, “Due to the ongoing situation with government restrictions, preparations were made secretly and discreetly, so as not to draw attention from strangers…

All notices about upcoming celebrations were passed along through word of mouth, with no notices in writing, no posters on the synagogue walls, no invitations sent through the mail, nor even a report in any publication, including this very newspaper.” The Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community has chafed against COVID-19 restrictions and clashed with the city over the rules for months.

  1. That the “tribe” could keep this a secret is the real eye-opener here. Really? I can’t believe that this could have been pulled off without the tacit cooperation of city officials and the MSM in New York City. This is exactly how they did 9/11. The real perps are still in place and ready for a re-do.

  2. Cuomo is taking heat for the nursing home cases, probably warranted. The thing is however, in old folks homes for the elites or jewish elites in NYS are particular, and the help is not well paid or well trained, or emotionally invested. This has been going on for years, where high priced retirement homes are understaffed, under trained, and generally abused and disenchanted.
    So when the lens is focused on nursing homes, remember these places were not a priority for people long before this happened. Go to Long Island, and see, you are either help or the serviced, and the serviced are demanding. Retirement homes are viewed as an investment opportunity in many places.
