removal of police barricades
which limit access on Satur-
days to a service road run-
ning past the United Luba-
vitcher Synagogue. R a bbi
Yehuda Krinsky, a spokes-
man for the Lubavitcher
sect, told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that the
Blacks were "trying to ,prod
us into a confrontation."
He said that if anyone tried
to remove the barricades
without authorization it
would be "between them and
the police." He declined to
say how members of the
hasidic community would re-
act in such an event.
The block was the scene of
a clash between several hun-
dred hasidim and police last
Saturday after two patrol-
men attempted to arrest
three hasidic youths who al-
legedly battered two cars
being driven down the block
during hours when traffic is
restricted.
One of the cars was driven
by Dr. Rufus Nichols, a black
physician who lives on the
block, and the other by a
patient of Dr. Nichols. The
hasidim claimed *he cars
were being driven "reck-
lessly."
At a press conference Mon-
day, Dr. Nichols and a black
pastor, the Rev. William A.
Jones, who is president of
the New York chapter of the
Southern Christian Leader-
ship Conference, said they
would demand that police re-
move the barricades.
Dr. Nichols' wife, Janet,
who is president of a neigh-
borhood association, said
that "The arbitrary traffic
restriction instituted at the
synagogue must be relieved
at once.tor we will be forced
to take the law into our own
hands." A police spokesman
said Tuesday that there were
no plans to remove the bar-
ricades.
Rev. Jones, pastor of the
Bethany Baptist Church, al-
leged that the barriers were
intended by the hasidim to
force outsiders to conform to
Orthodox Jewish law forbid-
ding riding on the Sabbath.
Rabbi Krinsky insisted that
the barricades, which have
been used for the past three
years, were intended soley
to protect worshipers, par-
ticularly children, who con-
gregate outside the syna-
gogue on Saturdays.
He said that four children

of hilt community have been
struck by cars on the block
during the past year.
Rabbi Krinsky told the
JTA that only through traf-
fic was barred from the
block during Saturday wor-
ship hours and that residents
were free to come and go.
Dr. Nichols contended that
as a physician, he and his
patients must have free
access to the block 24 hours
a day.
Howard Scheiner, 34, one
of three hasidic Jews ar-
rested in Saturday's clash
with police, was arraigned at
Brooklyn Criminal Court
Monday and released on
$2,500 bail pending a hearing
set for July 9.
Scheiner is charged with I

second-degree assault, rob-
bery, resisting arrest and
other offenses. The police
said that 15 officers were in-
jured in the melee, which
involved some 400 hasidim.
Hasidic spokesmen have
accused the police of indis-
criminately beating innocent
bystanders and said they
would file complaints against
individual officers who al-
legedly "acted like Nazis."
