Why a person would interrupt a religious service to spew hatred I cannot understand. These people have no joy in their lives , so they must take the joy from others. They are not happy so they must make other people unhappy. Your congregation does acts of kindness and good and accomplishes much. They have "zoom bombed" and done nothing to better themselves.

black anti-semitism must be addressed

Dear R. Sytner,
You used the word 'belligerent to describe the riots of last week. Have you seen pictures of Minneapolis? Of my city - NY?
Black anti-semitism is a decades old cancer in that community. Why is it never discussed? This is why I stay as far away from that community as I can. This is why I resent when Jews are getting down on a knee and saying Black Lives Matter...so did the life of Yankel Rosenbaum in '91 and the life of R. rabbi, Josef Neumann, murdered by a black man Chanukah '19. And lets not forget the endless muggings and their especially vile "knockout game".
I will allow you mean well but let's first discuss black anti-semitism before we start kneeling before the black community.

I believe the Rabbi is discussing this....listen to the overall message. He discusses self centered superiority etc... discrimination in any form and on any platform....of any group of people...

Who said George Floyd was racist?

Of course we're against racism! But who said that officer was racist? And what exactly are they protesting? There are lots of flaws in America, but it's still the best place for every race to live. And furthermore, of course they're going to move on to the Jews. That's history. Whenever there has been an altercation in a country, the Jews have always suffered. Just because I don't go out and protest, doesn't mean I'm not against racism. And now they're talking about defunding the police? No thanks. I'm not going to be part of that.
