Even the hot-sauce ads were too hot for the Hasids.

Orthodox rabbis yesterday declared such social-networking sites as Facebook off-limits, at a massive anti-Internet event that drew more than 60,000 to Citi Field and neighboring Arthur Ashe stadium.

Those who spoke were shown on the scoreboard at Citi Field between two ads for Cholula hot sauce with the image of its matronly female trademark covered up.

Was it streamed for those who couldn’t make it to the Citi Field arena?

Maybe they can also have a side meeting on the evils of Citi Bank.

Apparently they packed CitiField and needed to rent nearby Arthur Ashe tennis stadium (home of the U.S. Open) and its 20,000 seats for the overflow crowd. Amazing! And conservatives should take heart that each of these Jews will have an average of 8.7 kids per family...and in 25 years the “Jewish Vote” in America will be solid GOP. No wonder secular “Jews” hate these folks..what will Debbie Downer do?

From my understanding, Ultra Orthodox Jews in Israel are able to live off the Israeli welfare state and do not work, but instead stay at home and study the Torah.

Anyone who is more familiar then I am, do Orthodox Jews in America work?

Not all of them - they stay in Yeshiva to avoid military service. But that will soon end, with the imminent passage of the 'Tal Law'.

Of course they do.
