During the meeting, Bill de Blasio apologized to the ultra-Orthodox for a tweet from 2020 during the Corona period, so de Blasio attacked the ultra-Orthodox for conducting a funeral that had a permit, but de Blasio attacked the ultra-Orthodox due to pressure from the media.

Isaac Fleischer, de Blasio’s secret agent and representative of the Babub community, an influential stork in the county, told the New York media that he organized the meeting. “I’m the one I called,” Fleischer said. “I’ve been a friend of his for 20 years. When he was a council member, he was the best we’ve ever had. People need to remember that.” Fleischer did not officially support De Bellasio, but said “we will probably support him next week”.

“The last time we approved him, he won the election,” Fleischer said. He added that Borough Park residents forgot the Lazio field was “helping the community.” “Most people are angry at him, as mayor, he did a lot of things we did not agree with. But most people in Borough Park do not know what he achieved for us in the city council, Congress is elected every two years. If he does something against the community, believe me, in two years people will not They will vote for him again. “

The meeting was first reported by Hamodia, de Bellasio was asked about his conflicts with the ultra-Orthodox community during the plague, in which he faced harsh reactions to the closure of synagogues and other measures designed to fight the corona virus. We all went through a difficult time together, “said de Bellasio.” I had to make a lot of difficult decisions. “
