Hispanic Men & Women Dressed As Jews To Collect Money Stopped By Police

PHOTO: Hispanic men and women dressed as Jews to try to take advantage of the Pesach rush and collect for ‘Pesach’, were stopped and questioned by Police. LCSW this afternoon received calls stating that several Hispanic men with Kipas stood with other women  in the Downtown area – reportedly with wigs – collecting money from unassuming Jewish residents.

After locating the suspicious group, LCSW phoned police to investigate.

Police – including LPD’s Captain Greg Meyer – responded and put a stop to it. TLS-16/TLS-60.

  1. It’s fine for Hispanics to collect money. But it’s not fine if they dress up like Jews to trick us. But look-we learn that everyone knows the achdus of Jews that we help our brothers in need!!

  2. fraud is fraud. stop defending fraudsters!
    there are more Gentiles than Jews, so why indeed are they dressing as Jews to collect? could it be that Jews are more charitable to their brethren than Gentiles are to theirs?

  3. They are not from lakewood. They came were reportedly in Brooklyn a few days ago until they got chased out by the local shomrim.

    They came here in rented mini vans.

  4. I give to all ever goyem but don’t trick me and make me think your a yid!!!

    If u love the jewish way and genirosity than become jewish!!

  5. You know, everyone…it is Pesach. Times are very tough and people are desperate…although it is wrong, it is to be taken in context. It is difficult to offer aid because so much aid is needed and we have to make ourselves vulnerable with such an offer because we don’t know who we are really dealing with most of the time…so we need to be creative about how we help our brothers…If we can help and still keep our families safe, then we will help in some way. It is our nature and our desire to help and to alleviate suffering and pain. It is how we choose to accomplish these acts that is important. Helping those in need is a Mitzvah…it helps to define who we are.
