Woman Dressed Like Chossid Steals Tefillin from Williamsburg Bais Medrash


female-thief-williamsburgBrooklyn, NY –  A woman dressed as a chassidishe man showed up on Friday morning at the Satmar Bais Medrash on Hooper Street in Williamsburg. She went in to the bais medrash and stole several pairs oftefillin and talleisim. Before Chassidim there had a chance to question her, she fled.

Mispallelim quickly called Shomrim volunteers, who caught the woman in a building near the bais medrash.

It turns out that the woman is an unstable individual. It is not clear what she intended to do with the tashmishei kedushah she had pilfered. She was taken by police for psychiatric evaluation.

  1. You can barely see her in the pic. Besides which, can you find me a source (from a real posek in a real sefer) for not posting a tsniut pic?

  2. How in the world did anybody fall for this nutcracker and believe for a second that she was a man? You gotta have your head tested if you even for a second believe she looks like a man. She should have been spotted right away. Gosh some people really read genders by head gear!

  3. If u think seeing a pic of a lady all dressed up is bad dont go on matzav.
    Nothing is wrong thank u matzav keep up the good work
