NY shuts down 10,000 person wedding

[quote]Amid rising COVID-19 cases nationwide and a crackdown on a wedding in Brooklyn that reportedly planned to have 10,000 attendees, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Saturday announced a new strategy for combating COVID-19 into the fall and winter months by targeting micro-clusters.

Who knows 10,000 people? Are they a social media "influencer" couple who invited all their followers?

Gosh. I can't imagine what group thinks they don't need to abide by public health laws...

R1 - it's most likely a Hasidic Jewish wedding - the entire community comes out for it. But 10,000 is overstating the numbers.

I think you know exactly who, OP, and began this thread for that very reason.

by Anonymousreply 310/17/2020

Uh, no, r3. Christ. I saw "10,000 person wedding" and thought "Holy shit." Well, actually, I thought "Sun Myung Moon." Then I thought, "Holy shit."

We had the wedding in town for an Hasidic Jewish Rabbi, well over 10k people here, was awful! They are total pigs. Destroyed the property.

Well maybe it was a 10,000 person hipster wedding. Did you ever think about that?

They violate social distancing rules ironically.

10,000? Doesn't that violate polygamy laws?

by Anonymousreply 810/17/2020

Only 10k? Sad!

[quote]With 30,000 invited guests - 25,000 on the bridegroom's side, 5,000 on the bride's - and thousands who filled the sidewalks for a glimpse of the newlyweds, the outdoor wedding in the borough's Williamsburg section was one of the largest ever in the Hasidic community, Orthodox Jewish leaders said. They said the order for the invitations prompted strong competition among printers.

Where the fuck are they meeting 30,000 people?

When every family has 8-10 kids, in 3 generations (and they're short generations!) you've got huge numbers of relatives/ community members/ "friends" pretty quickly.

And it was probably a senior rabbi's offspring getting hitched, so yeah, literally the whole community would show up.

Now, that's a Bridezilla!

I'm guessing the wedding had an open bar.

The huge weddings take place when grandchildren of chief rabbis of different sects get married. The photo below is from one that had 25,000 guests.

It looks like they're walking her to the guillotine. In many ways, they are.

The Satmar Haredi are an abomination that should not be called Jews. They should not even be allowed to be associated with anyone or anything Jewish. They are a warped twisted cult and should be wiped off the face of the earth.

by Anonymousreply 1510/17/2020

Without even having read a comment, it must be the fucking Hassids. A wedding isn't a small family event. These fucks shave their daughters' heads and marry them off to the most prominent men they can (dowry $$$ exchanged, i.e White Slavery) and need to involve their whole fucking community in ritual celebration of their daughters' commitment to lifelong slavery to an uncouth and profoundly unhygeienic older man who doesn't wipe.

Apparently it was supposed to be the wedding of some chief Rabbi’s daughter

It’s been quite interesting witnessing how both NYC and NY state have had to deal with this particular group. They’re AWFUL, like so many other religious groups, they think they’re special and that rules don’t apply to them. Horrible horrible horrible people who don’t give two shits about public safety.

They were also superspreaders during the measles outbreak.

They’ve spread Covid all over Israel, too. They have no right to live in Israel, since they don’t believe it should exist, because it’s not under the direct control of the messiah. But they’re thugs, so Israel has to put up with them or be labeled “anti Semitic.” It’s insane.

R17, who is that?

by Anonymousreply 2310/17/2020

but why are 10,000 people getting married?

by Anonymousreply 2410/17/2020

Notice, r17, he is no longer a member of that filthy cult. He got out.

r23, his name is Jeff Wilbusch and he is one of the stars of UNORTHODOX on Netflix.

It isn't all Orthodox Jews who do this, it is ONLY the Satmar Haredi. Look them up on Wikipedia.

by Anonymousreply 2510/17/2020

I love the fact that Cuomo is essentially responding to their claims of anti-Semitism with "blow me".

by Anonymousreply 2610/17/2020

Not only got out, r25, he did it when he was just 13. Good for him.

Are you sure that’s a recent pic R14, because that looks like Buddy Hackett on the left side

R28: definitely Buddy Hackett in a Hasidic wig.
