[Reader Submitted] On Thursday, my wife and I were walking back from Shul (Elmwood Village) with her sister and brother-in-law. Both my sister in law and brother in are ill, so the walk took a little longer than we would have liked. Along the way, we stopped at the gazebo within the Enclave gates.
After resting a while we, continued our walk to my home.
To our amazement, a police car approached to ask if we lived here. My brother in law said he didn’t, and the officer immediately told us there was a complaint filed people are walking around the Enclave that didn’t belong. At this point my wife told the police officer we in fact lived here with in the gates of the Enclave. How embarrassing is this !!!!. Oh, did I mention my brother in law and I were wearing yarmulkes. The yarmulkes would be the only thing that would make us stand out as Jews except for the fact my wife and her sister were dressed in black.
Friday afternoon, the same event happened again. I invited a friend over after services with his son and again they were stopped by the police.
I applaud the police for doing there job, I just can not believe we have residents with in the Enclave that would rather call the police then ask the person or family walking if you live or belong in the Enclave. My opinion is Jews are not welcome unless you’re driving.
