With all the bad press out there about Baltimore, here’s another good thing the Jewish community did…
After the schools closed early afternoon on Tuesday, I met up with two former Baltimore County SWAT members, and decided to go to the Mondawmin Mall to the staging area where the various police departments and National Guard were set up.
I spoke to Ronnie Rosenbluth from Tov Pizza and David Cohen of Kosher Bite, and we coordinated fresh hot food for the hungry officers. They even had a choice of hotdogs, hamburgers, or pizza, with of course, lots of bottled water to go around. We fed hundreds of officers.
They were so appreciative that the Jewish community went out of its way during these trying times to give back for their incredible service to all of Baltimore. And of course, that we were willing to go to an area that had been so volatile on Monday, to show our support.
