Rally At the Manhattan JCC
There was a small but enthusiastic rally outside of the Manhattan Jewish Community Center at Amsterdam Ave and 76th Street. The JCC in its zeal to be progressive and inclusive has lent material support to groups that are promoting the movement for Boycott Disinvestment and Sanctions against Israel. This use of the facility for that purpose has been advanced by members of the Board of Directors including Ms Carol Zabar. This is a great pity as there are few places even in New York where you can get really good blintzes. Somewhat bizarrely the protesters point out that in San Francisco of all Left Wing bastions the local JCC came up with a Code of Conduct that prevented such a problem.
