      • NJ has plenty of gun control – all gun control does is make sure only law-breakers have guns and innocent people are sitting ducks – this is why the fascist DemoKKKrats love gun control just like the Nazis they inspired.

      • How stupid. The anti semite filled dem party and their complicit leaders who remain silent in the face of the vile filth from omar, tlaib, AOC, Bernie…. Is responsible for the climate. Any jew should be ashamed to support the hateful dems.

        • Wow you really believe that the entire Democratic Party are like AOC, Talib, and the other two? And you believe there is rampant Anti Semitism throughout the party? Today’s shooting at the kosher grocery store was an unfortunate result of a bad drug deal by undercover agents. It could have been at any retail store. Not an ant Semitic shooting. Open your eyes no connection to the tragic shooting today.

          • By now it has been said by the city mayor that it was targeted. They did target the store. The silence majority in Germany allowed Hitler to do what he wanted. They stayed quiet. A similar phenomenon is occurring in the democratic party where vociferous anti semites are leading and not only most democrats are being quiet but even refuse to condemn them and even defend them.

      • if the NRA were followed these things wouldn’t happen – all gun control laws (like drug laws) do is make sure that only criminal have guns and the law-abiding citizens are sitting ducks in the Democrat-controlled ghettos.

  1. I never understood why anyone would move to Jersey City instead of up to Sullivan County – and even in Sullivan County why do people move to Monticello and other ghettos instead of nice Jewish areas like the Town of Bethel? So scary.

    • Brooklyn has become impossible to afford, thanx to arrogant Yidden who never worked a day in their life, but inherited millions of dollars from Daddy. Those sleazy real estate agents and house flippers also contributed to making it unaffordable for a normal hardworking person, back in the late 90’s. Not everyone wants to walk in lockstep and move to Lakewood. Jersey City and Patterson are much closer to Manhattan, for those that work there.

      • The high prices are due to hipsters who for “environmental reasons” share one apartment for $99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 a month with 50 roommates.

    • Nebach, you are confused. There are no Jews living in Bethel at all. No synagogues, Stores etc. Its a Hippie town. The white trash in Sullivan County is much worse than in NJ. Go yo Walmart in Monticello Sept-May and you will see. Fat Republican White Trash with Tattoos all over.

      • there is a year-round synagogue in Bethel, what are you talking about? The Rov of Bethel, shlit”a has been here for over 40 years with the brachah of all the gedolei Yisroel.

        • So its you and the var sliteh? 2 Rabbonim in Bethel? How many Pizza Shops? Shuls? Yeeshivas? Kolels? I am vacationing for 40 years in the Catskill Woodbourne,Monticello, Woodridge, Fallsburg, Liberty. Ellenville, Loch Scheldrake, Kiamishe, White Lake, Swan Lake all well known. Bethel? Sorry Its known for Woodstock, Hippies not Shuls.

    • Williamsburg was also like that before it gentrified. When you have 13 kids each and each kids marries and has 13 kids, that’s a 3 digit hump in population from one family over one generation. You need thousands of apartments and those aren’t even large enough to fit everyone in but u figure some kids dorm

      Bottom line, you aren’t going to satisfy these housing needs in Jamaica Estates or back Lawrence especially if you aren’t wealthy to begin with. Not many choices. Look st farcrockaway. Plenty of dreck but yidden still packing in there.

      • Phineas, didn’t you say many comments ago that we should all stop reading news and start saying Tehillim??

        I ask you again, do you have a special privilege or status that so far you haven’t listened to your own advice?

  2. My limited understanding of why live there.
    there are some Satmar investors that bought housing there that seem to be likely to go up in value. They don’t mind renting them to young families that can not buy yet elsewhere.

  3. just for your info this can happen in boro park, monsey or lakewwod too. wake up people before something happens in your own backyard!!
    Hashem should help the families of the victims and bring moshiach now.

  4. From YWN

    TRAGIC UPDATE FROM JERSEY CITY 3:56PM

    Highly credible sources tell YWN that among the deceased victims inside the Kosher Supermarket are two members of the Hasidic community. Misaskim and Chesed Shel Emes are both responding to the scene.

  5. If this didn’t happen in a ‘kosher’ store would any of you care? The VIN commenters above once again showed their obvious racism and SGM. (Shtetl Ghetto Mentality). Bethel in Sullivan County? At least 4 are dead (besides the perps) and an argument breaks out over where ‘shayna’ Yidden should live? Gevalt.

  6. It’s very simple. Everyone knows that if he would bring up the common sense gun laws it would pass. And everyone knows that if it would pass, there were be less blood shed. Hence his hands are full of blood. So what do I care about any of the positive stuff economy etc. If he’s full of blood!
