Tensions rise in Crown Heights as Jewish-owned housing expands into black areas. But is this all about real estate or is something more fundamental, like racism, at play?
[Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok “Yosi”] Jacobson, whose car has been broken into twice, thinks that the crime committed against Jews is serious.
“I don’t think it’s random because it happens in one direction,” he said. “It is African-American brothers who attack the Jews living here. I call them brothers because I believe that we are all children of one God.”
With spokespeople like Jacobson, the Jews of Crown Heights can only expect trouble – God forbid.
