When the car in front of you makes a full stop and starts inching to squeeze through a double parked car when there's only 2 ft space on each side.

It’s not polite to make fun of women.

It usually works, as long as you hold your breathe

When they decide to park a bus with music and announcements all day long just outside my window....

(oh. and when they start off the day by playing the Zionist anthem... I wonder what would happen if that would happen in Williamsburg... Not welcome in Crown Heights either, but might have made a scene if done in Williamsburg).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Very welcome in CH...

Why are you so afraid of the ones that call themselves "anti-Zionists"?

Do you know anyone else in CH that would call it the "Zionist anthem" instead of the Israeli anthem?

Not at all welcome in CH.

It is known that the Rebbe had his name removed from various מוסדות that had it sung in their dinners at the request of philanthropists that supported them.

What makes you think that I'm afraind of anyone calling themselves "anti-Zionist" when I am one myself?

I believe you are - I was specifically referring to some that consider themselves to be, but aren't necessarily..

I doubt whether such a מציאות exists. You are either repulsed by the flag and the anthem, or you are not.

Sure.

I don't have exact sources now, but see for example the reference to "ניגון הידוע" here: https://chabadlibrary.org/books/admur/ig/21/8080.htm

Also see some information here: http://chabadpedia.co.il/index.php/%D7%9E%D7%93%D7%99%D7%A0%D7%AA_%D7%99%D7%A9%D7%A8%D7%90%D7%9C

Color me surprised. I'm sure a quick respectful comment and they would have shut it off

Oh, "it" was only played once, and as I suspected (confirmed when I approached them after Mincha suggesting that they share the wealth and take the bus elsewhere) was due to the non-Jewish operator of the bus not knowing what it is, and just looking up "Jewish" music, and that came up as a track.

But the constant noise outside my window is still there (though they said they would lower it a bit). I guess there's a price to pay when you're centrally located.

Is that the only price you pay for that?
