Watch: Ger Chasidim Demonstrate How To Protest During Coronavirus

9

ARAD (VINnews) — In this southern town in Israel there is a flourishing community of Gerer chasidim who have suffered in recent years from the hostile approach of secular residents. In recent weeks there has been an escalation in attacks on the community with a number of shops owned by chasidim torched and vandalized and young boys berating chasidim for “coming too near to them.” The chasidim feel that the incitement against the community has affected all sectors and that they were being unfairly targeted. A demonstration was organized but since the Gerer chasidim strictly maintain regulations in accordance with coronavirus regulations, they kept social distancing and also wore masks.

 

The demonstration led to positive responses even from secular people who were impressed by the discipline shown by the chasidim.
