The New York Daily News reports:
As coronavirus cases continue to surge across New York City, a Brooklyn synagogue will be slapped with a $15,000 fine for hosting a huge wedding in violation of restrictions aimed at reducing the COVID infection rate, Mayor de Blasio said Monday.
“We know there was a wedding. We know it was too big. We don’t have an exact figure, but whatever it was, it was too big,” Hizzoner said on NY1. “There appeared to be a real effort to conceal it, which is absolutely unacceptable.”
The synagogue has a maximum legal capacity of 7000 and video shows it to have been filled to the literal rafters. As you can see below, even right wing former New York lawmaker Dov Hikind is furious.
