The poor Hasidim just can’t catch a break. Now even their water is not kosher.
Yesterday, a blogger on the social news website Reddit uploaded photos of crustaceans found after an examination some New York City tap water under a microscope. The tiny creatures, called copepods, became apparent after an H&E stain was added to the water.
According to the post, the un-kosher critters are added to water reservoirs to “attack, kill, and eat the younger first and second instar larvae of the mosquitoes,” making it safe to drink.
