Story was highly offensive


To The Editor:
In the July 17- 23 Catskill Mountain News article, “Multi-cultural scene common sight in Fleischmanns,” writer Joe Moskowitz has appointed himself an expert on Hasidic Jewish customs and mores.  

Mr. Moskowitz’s remarks are inaccurate and display a lack of research and knowledge. These are not attributes of a qualified journalist.  He expresses only negative views about a culture and religion of which he knows little to nothing.  This article is highly offensive.
