A Rockland group shopped at a Kosher supermarket today in hopes of promoting interaction between Hasidic and non-Hasidic groups in the county.
Dozens of members from "Wake Up Rockland" dressed in all black and shopped at the Rockland Kosher Supermarket in Monsey.
The group formed a few months back and hopes to bring unity to a county where both cultures often clash.
Community liaison Yossi Gestetner calls the demonstration and group a "move in the right direction."
"We may have some road blocks but I think with good communication and the right steps and the public relations we can do a lot of good things," Gestetner said. "The Jewish community doing business with the non-Jewish community."
The group says it plans to keep holding demonstrations until there is a change in Rockland.
