Amazing thread discussing the spread of COVID in the Hasidic communities of Brooklyn. Public health can be complicated, and systemic racism and antisemitism make it harder. Having smart, nuanced discussions like these are crucial to better public health policy. https://twitter.com/kosherqueen_/status/1312992736220450816
This thread also discusses the NYPD trying to disperse a crowd of Jewish residents celebrating Sukkot today. A greater understanding of and better communication with the Hasidic community could have led to a far more peaceful (and healthy) outcome. https://twitter.com/griffinmalone6/status/1313344721679384582
cc: @realfrostylady — I think you’ll appreciate this thread as it intersects with a lot of topics I’ve enjoyed reading your views on. You’ve given me a lot of insight into the issues/pervasiveness (both intentional and casual) of antisemitism in our systems and cultures.
