Brooklyn, NY - BQE Billboard Warns Jews That Manhattan Is Unkosher
Brooklyn, NY - â€śDear Jew: You are entering a dangerous place. Shield your eyes.â€ť
Thatâ€™s the Hebrew-language text on a huge billboard that an Orthodox group has paid to post alongside a Brooklyn highway.
The â€śdangerous placeâ€ť is Manhattan. The danger isnâ€™t specified, but itâ€™s clear theyâ€™re not talking about muggings.
Presumably directed at ultra-Orthodox Jews traveling to Manhattan for work, the billboard is sponsored by an organization called the Congregation of Yad Moshe, which appears to have ties to New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind.
Thereâ€™s no explanation on the stop sign red billboard, but the message is clear: Manhattan is unkosher. Stay in Brooklyn.
