Man Drives Car into Torah Procession in London
Virtual Jerusalem ^ | 6/20/2013

Posted on 06/20/2013 4:09:46 PM PDT by Former Fetus

London man broke into a Hachnasas Sefer Torah procession this Sunday, driving his car into the Jewish gathering.

The Hachnasas Sefer Torah was held on Sunday in Stamford Hill, London into the Beis Midrash of Vizhnitz, the Behadrey-Haredim news portal reported.

When the procession arrived in the area of Stamford Avenue, loud sirens were heard and a car drove quickly into the crowd.

"We were in the middle of the dancing, the joy was great. There were hundreds of people, men, women and many children. I suddenly heard a car honking behind me followed by screaming," said bystander Moshe Birenbaum.

"I turned around and saw a car driven by a young gentile bursting into the crowd, and the crowd fled in fear to the sides," he said.

"A group of participants tried to stop him but he almost ran them over. The non-Jew crossed the crowd and made abusive comments like: 'You Jews won't take over our neighborhood.'"

"We called the police, but the police arrived much later since some roads were closed to traffic because of the Torah procession," Birenbaum added, according to the news portal.

Police eventually nabbed the perpetrator who confessed, marinating that that the Jews are taking over the neighborhood.

No one was injured during the incident.

You Jews won't take over our neighborhood

Funny, when the Muslims have taken over whole neighborhoods in London!

To my Jewish "teachers" in FR, I know a Sefer Torah is a Torah in the form of a scroll. But, what is a Hachnasas Sefer Torah? I googled it and only got extremely confused. Thanks.

Hachnassas means greating or welcoming. A hachnassas sefer Torah ceremony is held when a synagogue gets a new Torah scroll. It is a very festive occasion, with dancing, etc., as described in the article.

It’s just a little celebration in honor of a synagogue acquiring a new Sefer Torah, which is very expensive. Depending on the community, there might be singing, dancing, and shots of liquor.

To be honest, I prefer to call them the religion of The Nefarious Moon God and his Child-Raping prophet (Pigs be upon him).

It should be noteworthy that there was no mention of injuries or deaths, and he was honking his horn, which seems to indicate that he wanted to disrupt.

I would like to add that if this happened in much of the US, his car would have looked like Bonnie and Clyde’s car, that is, somewhat the worse for wear.

It’s a celebration welcoming a new Sefer Torah to a Synagogue.

Re my last post, I should learn to read the thread before answering, which others have done. Obviously this was an attempt at disruption. There are places in the US and Canada this could happen.

‘Stewing’ would almost work?
Stewing=marinating close enough for government work.

From my view most reporters work for 0bama.

“Marinating that that the Jews are taking over the neighborhood.”

Sounds like this - the most SFW - definition from the Urban Dictionary -

“sitting around, thinking about something that just happened and letting it soak in”

Since they don’t give the perp’s name, I would bet that he is of the ROP.

Probably autocorrect for "maintaining", which would make sense in this context.

PS: "Loss"

If this mook had pulled that nonsense here in east Texas, I guarantee that his car would have been, shall we say, well ventilated.
