This image was reportedly taken in New City, located in Rockland County, NY near Monsey. It was taken on Halloween afternoon, and shows a couple dressed up as Orthodox Jews.
The “couple” are pulling a red wagon filled with children (dolls), along with a big sign that reads “we buy houses cash”.
The male is wearing a black hat (of sorts), fake Tzitis, fake long black beard and black glasses. The female is wearing a long black skirt, cheap fake peals around her neck, and has a head covering.
Meanwhile, while the Anti-Semites were celebrating Halloween, Orthodox Jews who don’t celebrate the holiday at all, were busy doling out candy to hundreds of children all over Jackson, Toms River and also in the Monsey area.
The couple in New City are apparently upset that Orthodox Jews have been purchasing homes in the area, as the Monsey community continues to explode into neighboring towns and villages.
There has recently been alot of media coverage about Jews that allegedly knocked on doors in many areas asking if the home owners would be willing to sell their homes and move.
In September, the Mahwah Township Council (N.J. – also near Monsey) introduced a “no-knock” ordinance. It would create a registry of homeowners who do not want solicitors banging on their doors. Violators would be fined $100 for a first-time offense. Other communities along the New York border have enacted similar ordinances.
Last week, the New Jersey Attorney General announced the state would sue Mahwah over its Anti-Semitic legislation.
In Toms River NJ, Mayor Thomas Kelaher says he has had complaints from residents – who say some realtors are aggressive and use “suspicious and creepy” tactics to try and convince residents to sell. Kelaher compared his town’s current problems to ‘blockbusting’ by the African-American community decades ago. ‘It’s like an invasion,’ he said. ‘It’s the old throwback to the 1960s, when block-busting happened in Philadelphia and Chicago with the American community – “I want to buy your house. You’ll be sorry if you don’t.”
The Mayor of Jersey City NJ also had his complaints about door-knocking calling it “very aggressive solicitation.” “They literally go door to door and can be very pushy trying to purchase someone’s house,” Mr. Fulop, a grandson of Holocaust survivors and a graduate of yeshivas, said in an interview. “It’s not the best way to endear yourself to the community, and there’s been a lot of pushback.”
