The angry mob that violently attacked my friend and much-admired colleague Jacob Kornbluh in New York’s Borough Park on Wednesday night called him a "Nazi" and "Hitler." They also used a Yiddish slur which, if anything, has even worse connotations for anyone with a knowledge of Jewish history. 

They called Kornbluh - an indefatigable reporter for Jewish Insider who has been focusing in recent months on how his own ultra-Orthodox community has been openly flouting the public-distancing rules, aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19 – a "moyser."
