MONTREAL, March 6 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jewish Orthodox Community Council
(JOCC) is shocked by recent allegations that children of the Chassidic
community were told not to pay attention to a female police officer.
Without commenting on the alleged incident (due to the reported
investigation), our position is clear:
The Talmud states: "DINA DMALCHISA DINA" the law of the land is the law.
As equal citizens residing in Quebec, all members of authority, both
female and male, are held in the highest regard and the laws of the land is
respected. These values are taught to our children as well.
Any allegation to the contrary is unjust.
