Synagogues Secretly Open, Social Distancing Ignored

4.14.20 | by Adam Balhetchet | BROOKLYN – Folks in Borough Park & Williamsburg discreetly observed Passover at synagogues. According to a local, signs were placed on the synagogues directing folks to back door entrances with door codes in order to avoid detection from Police. Groups were seen exiting synagogues, walking closely together, ignoring social distancing, most of them not wearing masks. According to a witness, a large group in Williamsburg started running away from an NYPD police car when they arrived to conduct crowd control. Last month, Hatzolah EMS medical director Dr. Zimmerman advised the community not to go to shul (synagogue) due to the pandemic.
