    "As a resident in the Borough for over forty years, ans a member of the episcopal church, I am embarrassed, and shocked at the bigoted comments.

    I was present at two meetings of the Historic Commission, you had to be not see their atisemetical feelings, no star of David, no ISRAEL stone.

    Wake up friends, we are in the great USA, where even JEWS have rights. "

    Cool Justice Report Editor's Note:
    With the resurfacing of anti-semitic chatter regarding the establishment of a synagogue in Litchfield, it seemed appropriate to bring back the poster girl for these battle cries. As noted in the link, Blond Nazi Background, this mug originally appeared on another site.

    Jewish group to hold meeting on proposed complex

    “There are no words to describe the sadness of the commission’s denial,” Eisenbach said. “We are trying to reverse the unfriendly and unwelcoming spirit of the historic commission.”

    LITCHFIELD — Chabad Lubavitch of Litchfield County invites the public to take part in an informational meeting today aimed at clarifying the congregation’s plans to establish its own house of worship in town.

    Rabbi Joseph Eisenbach, the spiritual leader of Chabad Lubavitch of Litchfield County, invites residents to listen and ask questions during a meeting at the Litchfield Community Center, at 421 Bantam Road in Litchfield, today at 7:30 p.m. People are allowed to ask anything about the congregation, he said.

    “We are open to anything and everything,” Eisenbach said. “This should be an eye-opener, a chance to clarify a lot of information that has been going around our town.”

    The Chabad Lubavitch of Litchfield County submitted a request to the Litchfield Historic District Commission to establish a Jewish house of worship. The congregation’s request was rejected in the fall of 2007 by the historic district commission. Eisenbach said that the meeting today is strictly a spiritual meeting, and that it has nothing to do with the legal proceedings on the issue.

    “There are no words to describe the sadness of the commission’s denial,” Eisenbach said. “We are trying to reverse the unfriendly and unwelcoming spirit of the historic commission.”

    Two Catholic spiritual leaders in Litchfield wrote a letter addressed to the residents of Litchfield in which they notify them of the meeting today and encourage them to take part. In the letter, the Rev. Robert Tucker of Saint Anthony of Padua and the Rev. William Considine wrote: “There have been many misconceptions and misinformation about the project and we want to give you the opportunity to hear about it firsthand. As we all are children of God, it is imperative upon us to reach out and educate ourselves about our neighbors.”
