Proposed Street Rename In Brooklyn

Brooklyn Councilman David G. Greenfield has proposed renaming 50th Street in Borough Park. If the proposal passes, the portion of the street that runs through the chasidic neighborhood will be named for Rabbi Chaim Michoel Dov Weissmandl, in honor of the man who worked to save Jews during the Holocaust.

“There is no question that Rabbi Weissmandl was an incredible person, a great scholar and a leader for thousands of Jews throughout the world, including here in Boro Park,” Greenfield and community leader Alfred Schonberger announced in a letter to the neighborhood community board.
