Secretary Pompeo: Given Israel’s robust civilian and military legal system, and strong track record of investigating and prosecuting wrongdoing by military personnel, it’s clear the ICC is only putting Israel in its crosshairs for nakedly political reasons. It’s a mockery of justice.

A high-profile wedding celebration is calling into question the state’s executive order when it comes to large gatherings and religion. Thousands of people packed inside the Village of Kiryas Joel’s main synagogue on Garfield Road last Tuesday. Video of the event given exclusively to News 12 shows people sitting shoulder to shoulder and without masks, on rows of bleachers and on the floor, during a Hasidic custom called a mitzvah dance, following the wedding of Grand Rabbi Aron Teitelbaum’s granddaughter. Catering halls statewide have not yet reopened, causing many people to postpone their weddings, but Village Administrator Gedalye Szegedin says the event was held at a synagogue and falls under Phase 2 guidelines, allowing houses of worship to reopen. Szegedin also compared the event’s size to recent protests saying, “Sometimes social gatherings are unavoidable and spontaneous as we’ve seen the multiple large protests all over the streets of the U.S.” According to the New York state website, whether protesting or at a wedding, New Yorkers are required to wear masks and maintain a 6-foot distance in public.
A man rescued from the Hudson River by first responders has died at the hospital. The incident was reported just before 9 p.m. Thursday near West 11th Street and the West Side Highway. Police say the man went into the water to retrieve property before finding himself in distress. That is when three other people went in after him to rescue him. Those three people were eventually rescued by FDNY Marine One.
