Community leaders are urging calm amid an already tension-filled climate between Ramapo’s Orthodox Jewish community and immigrant and black communities over zoning and public school funding issues.
“I don’t want people to get over-excited,” said Yossi Gestetner, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish Blooger. “It’s a serious case. It’s not a joke. But I don’t’ want people to push buttons that will not be helpful and will divide our town and community more than it already is.”
