NJ Couple Charged With Child Endangerment Over Bat Mitvah, Governor Vows To “Name And Shame” Violators

NBC Philadelphia reports:

Lakewood Police and Ocean County prosecutors said Eliezer Silber, 37, and Miriam Silber, 34, held a gathering of 40 to 50 people in the yard and street in front of their home Sunday. Police dispersed the crowd and charged the Silbers with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child, one count for each of their five kids who were in the home.

“My Office will prosecute any individual who defies or breaks the law, State of Emergency or otherwise. Everyone must respect and follow the law,” Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer said in a statement. The Silbers were apparently holding a bat mitzvah in their home, New Jersey State Police Col. Patrick Callahan said.
