More self-degradation



I detect some stereotypical aspersions cast upon a certain group of Chassidim originating from the Romanian-Hungarian border. Notice the Baal Midos Yeshivishe type accepts his punishment with honor.

Sad, just plain sad.

It's actually quite humerous... i wouldn't read too deeply into this video... i doubt the creators had any illicit motives behind this clip...just an attmpt at humour... perhaps they went a bit too far.

the footage in BP shows cops manhandling innocent Jewish bystanders.

This is a shandeh! How dare they insinuate that all chassidim riot, park in handicap spaces and wear size 13 yamukas!

The store - clearly recognizable to anyone familiar with that area - is Five Star Judaica in Wesley Hills near Monsey -
The Rabbonim should Boycott this store!

The store is 5 Star Judaica, in Wesley Hills NY, just north of Monsey. At least half of their customers are chassidim, and they have a great selection of chassidish seforim.

I'm surprised they'd allow it.

Chassidim? what Chassidim? where do you see a Chossid in the video clip? all I see is a cool guy with a flying saucer hat. That's no Chosid.

While the store looks like 5 Star Judaica in monsey - that is not the interior - they must have just shot the outside for film purposes - i don't think anyone should boycott just because they disagree with a stupid video clip -5 Star likely had nothing to do with it!

That is too the interier of 5 Star Judaica. That's even the owner behind the register. I shop there enough. Good deal on esrogim.
