I am in a treatment center that treats people with mental health and or substance abuse problems. The first group of everyday is a check in/conversation group. Today my grouo decided to talk about Jews. Specifically the “hasidic Jews that are taking over Lakewood” and how it is a problem. (Lakewood NJ, I’m in PA) They also brought up the Israel/Palestine conflict. I don’t know if it was appropriate to flair this post as antisemitism but I did just in case. They know I’m Jewish too. I just didn’t say a word. It made me anxious though. It also isn’t the first time I heard someone talk poorly about Lakewood because of the “jewish problem”. I hope that Lakewoods Jewish population is aware of this so that they can take appropriate measures.
