SHOCKING AUDIO: Jackson Mayor Reina About Eruvs: “What’s Next, Sharia Law?” | G. Sonnenfeld

Following the resignation of Richard Egan from the planning board, questions remained over whether other high-ranking Jackson officials were involved in the CUPON meeting or held the same views as Egan.

According to an audio clip obtained by TLS, it seems that the rot in Jackson goes to the very top. In the clip, mayor Mike Reina is heard speaking at a ‘Meet the Mayor’ event, talking about the possibility of installing a public eruv in Jackson. While Reina said he was ok with an eruv on private land, he would never allow it to be put on public land. “What’s next, sharia law?” Reina is heard asking.

For a mayor that has on numerous occasions insisted that the decision over whether to permit and eruv would be based only on what the existing law allows, the comments seem to be quite a departure from his claims. Sources have also confirmed to TLS that other Jackson officials also made negative and possibly derogatory comments toward Orthodox Jews .

TLS is currently working reviewing all audios that it has obtained and will be releasing them in the coming days.

It is worth noting, that Richard Egan was a mayoral appointee and is said to be a close confidant of Reina. The comments in the audio clip raise new questions of whether Egan shared Reina’s views on Orthodox Jews in Jackson and that was why he was appointed to the planning board.

More to come.
