Previously, the notoriously antisemitic NYC Mayor De Blasio threatened to permanently close synagogues and churches that defied his restrictions.
This is what we are paying for in this heavily taxed, bankrupt city. The media mentions that the city furnishes some kosher meals but the fact is there aren’t any kosher meals.
Ramadan Mubarak, New York City!
This year’s celebration may look a little different, but faith — in every sense of the word — is at the heart of our response to COVID-19. And we will get through this struggle together. #AskMyMayor pic.twitter.com/m3U2zOhe8p

NYC to Serve 500,000 Free Halal Meals to Muslims During RamadanBy Henry Goldman, Bloomberg,
New York City intends to serve a half-million Halal meals during the Muslim holiday of Ramadan, in the leading edge of a program that could feed as many as 2 million residents unable to pay for food, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
About 400,000 Halal meals will be distributed at 32 Department of Education buildings and another 100,000 will be served through community organizations during the month.
“One of Ramadan’s most noble callings is to feed the hungry,” de Blasio said during a Thursday news briefing. “To remember to be there for those in need. And that is now harder than ever now that people can’t go to their mosques.”
City officials expect the food crisis to become more acute. The mayor has estimated the city will lose at least 475,000 jobs due to the lockdown forced by the Covid-19 pandemic.
