SHOCKING: Jackson Churches Yes, Synagogues No, Says Mayor | G. Sonnenfeld

The emergency injunction filed by Agudath Israel of America against Jackson Township is reverberating throughout Ocean County, as insiders in Jackson Township allege in the court filing open anti-Semitism by Reina, Nixon and Calogero.

The massive court filing includes open evidence that top Jackson officials deliberately discriminated against Orthodox Jews who call Jackson home.

Perhaps the most explosive section of the filing, is a statement alleged to have been made by Jackson’s Reina.

That allegation states the following: at a meeting on March 22nd 2019, Reina was asked by now-disgraced Republican Party Chairman George Gilmore, who was then still County Chairman, regarding synagogues, “If these were churches, would we be fighting them?” Reina responded “Absolutely not.”

Is this allegation true? Will Reina deny making this bigoted comment? Will he deny openly admitting to discriminating against Jews? Is there in fact a conspiracy in the top echelons of Jackson’s government to interfere with Orthodox Jewish residents’ civil rights, including their right to religious freedom?

TLS, through multiple sources, has compiled a large amount of evidence regarding these allegations that show that they deserve the attention of all citizens who believe in civil rights and religious freedom. The allegation made regarding Reina may be the linchpin of evidence of this conspiracy to violate civil rights.

Mr. Reina has yet to comment on this allegation.

  1. How despicable.

    Shame on you Mr Mayor. Your hate has no place here in Jackson. As a long time resident and someone who you mislead to vote for you, I’m deeply saddened and ashamed on half of all Jackson resident to have ever gotten behind and supported you. You have no place here, not today and not in the future. Throw in the towel and resign. You can hardly see through all the egg on your face.
