Hasidic Jews find secret tunnel at New York synagogue and brawl with police as they try to close it.
A secret tunnel was uncovered underneath a Jewish synagogue in New York. The passage was found at the HQ of the Chabad Lubavitch movement one of the world’s largest Hasidic groups, located in Brooklyn.
The rabbi of the synagogue said the tunnel was built by ‘young agitators’ within the movement, trying to connect the HQ to a nearby building.
It was found when local homeowners heard tunneling beneath their floors. Video shows some members of the synagogue opening up the tunnel before others brawled with police when they came to shut it down.
In total, ten men were arrested as engineers tried to fill the tunnels in.
