New York officials announced Monday that they are fining the organizers of a Hasidic Jewish wedding attended by thousands of people earlier this month, calling it reckless and accusing the organizers of concealing it from authorities.
The New York Times reported that he was mayor of New York City Bill de BlasioBill de BlasioBiden promises to work with mayors. Hundreds of bodies of New York viruses are still stored in freezer trucks. The Cuomo heated with journalists in NYC schools: MORE (D) said the wedding planners took active steps to ensure that thousands of attendees did not disclose the wedding news to the city authorities.
“We know it was a wedding,” the mayor told NY1 local news, the newspaper said. “We know it was too big. I don’t have an exact number, but whatever it was, it was too big. There seemed to be a real effort to keep it secret. Which is absolutely unacceptable.”
The video of the wedding, first published on the Internet and acquired by the Times, shows thousands of men tightly packed together in one of the wedding halls, and a local Hasidic newspaper reportedly appeared about the covering effort.
“We’ve been through so much,” de Blasio continued during the NY1 interview, according to the Times. “And in fact, the Williamsburg community has responded very positively in recent weeks, done a lot more testing and was very responsible. This was amazingly irresponsible, just unacceptable. So there will be immediate consequences for the people who leave it. “
City officials in parts of New York have been fighting for months with members of the Hasidic ultrortodox Jewish community over restrictions on COVID-19, which banned large public gatherings that often take place in the vast majority of Hasidic neighborhoods.
In October, New York City police arrested Hasidic Jewish protest organizers against the city’s COVID-19 restrictions after a fire broke out and a journalist was brutally abused on the street.
