I want to express my disappointment with our civic leaders for allowing the Teaneck National Night Out to be scheduled on Tisha B’Av, August 1. The Night Out should be an event when the entire Teaneck community comes together to celebrate our town and show support for the police department. Unfortunately, the observant Jewish community will now be excluded from participation, which could be misinterpreted as a deliberate snubbing of the event.

I urge our elected officials and others to encourage the event to be rescheduled for another time—even the next night—when the entire Teaneck community will be able to attend.
