We need a Haredi Carnaval ,with floats and parades of weird looking 17 th century polish black costumes and strange wigs dancing the famous samba : Aquarela Do Hava Nagila .Just leave the naked girls for yours truly.
These " Homem em negro" ( men wearing black ) sorely need to : GET A LIFE.
MR REBEL ,   RIO DE SAFED   (02.15.13)
Let us jews enjoy the Carnival .Let us have a Rabbi Nachman Na..nach ....Nachma...Nachman me' uman float with girls dancing and fancy costumes and a Lubavich Moshiach parade with hundreds of Chabadniks dancing the samba and lots of alcohol and food and fun . LIGHTEN UP .
4. Next year in Rio De Janeiro
Lior ,   Tel Aviv   (02.15.13)
5. Pagan Displays
Zechariah   (02.16.13)
The Pagan display of lack of self restraint even murders is not progressive .Even Lenin would have opposed it.It seems innocently depraved and its a phenomena that Forensic Psychiatry ought analyse.
6. Whatever, but…
Colorado ,   USA   (02.16.13)
The Bonnies don't look like Haredim to me. I think they're being responsible parents. A lot of what goes on in Rio is not at all developmentally or morally appropriate for young children. Duh.
7. Wow ,...

No assaults, no spitting like in Mea shearim ??? ,...
8. Purim in Israel not much different
VulgarizationOfPurim ,   Jerusalem   (02.16.13)
Sadly the moral and religious aspect Of Purim has become for many in Israel An excuse for drunkeness and immoral behavior as well it's innocence as observed for a millennia has been lost except in the religious and traditional communities reversing totally the message of Purim one of self sacrifice And pride of faith and nation and I say this as a secular Jew who deeply respects Jewish tradition it is now a mini vulgar copy of Rio. the Israeli secular "Jew ." Has lost the plot" as the say.
9. Israeli haredim could learn from this
Jacob E ,   Holon, Israel   (02.16.13)
So instead of complaining about the Pride parade or any number of annual things that go on. Just go to Eilat or the Dead Sea or somewhere else for a few days and just stop causing problems for everyone else by complaining
10. Carnaval in Rio
Arnaldo Levacov ,   Rio de Janeiro   (02.16.13)
I traval every year to Teresopolis in the carnaval, but the yongs jews stay in the city, to enjoy a paceful carnaval of Rio , its a very beatefoul party in the streets, tavou kulam
11. I don't know any Haredi festival
David ,   Israel   (02.16.13)
That people fly from all corners of the globe just to see, oh unless its the Haredim on a festival for welfare
12. Rio
Debbie ,   Israel   (02.16.13)
#6 This couple is not Haredi. The article does not state that they are. He's a Bnei Akiva emissary. They're religious, but there are many sects of religious, Haredi is only one of them.
13. #10, I want to come, b'shana habaa b'Rio, and for Olympics.
Michael ,   California, USA   (02.16.13)
14. Lies! There are not 7000 Orthodox Jews in Rio
Hayim ,   Haifa, Israel   (02.16.13)
There are not 7000 Orthodox Jews in Rio. The real reason that the Jewish community leaves Rio is because it is too hot there, so they go to summer houses in the mountains. And there are obscenities in Rio during the entire year, not only during the Carnaval.
15. Careful judging others' joy !
jay abouaf ,   jaffa israel   (02.16.13)
Have a safe trip out of the city. Next time we'd love to see you here !
16. Lot of lies
Raul ,   Rio de Janeiro   (02.18.13)
This article is a bag full os lies. Everyone that can afford, not just the Jews, go to the mountains (where Teresopolis is) during the summer. It is just to hot here. If someone cannot stand the view of a girl with "imodest" dresses, he cannot live in Rio, regardless of Carnival. There are not 7k orthodox people in Rio. And so on. A disgusting text!
17. Jews flee Rio during carnival Kobi Nahshoni
Mauro Gorodicht ,   Rio de Janeiro, Br   (02.20.13)
Text written liar, coward. An insult to intelligence, an inelegance. Brazilian Jews always attended this beautiful popular party. misinformation. population untrue information. Jewish holidays are the 5 generations in Teresopolis (Eretzópolis), never to escape, because even religious Orthodox celebrate Purim in the mountains like an authentic carnival. Disregard the WIZO organization for decades that our children one of the most beautiful carnival celebrations for the Jews. Disrespect to 130,000 Jewish Brazilians. (Including Orthodox 1500, not 7000) Mauro Gorodicht FIERJ - elected Board Concil - Jewish Federation of Rio de Janeiro Herut Lodge - B'nai Brith Rio de Janeiro, Brazil B'nai Brith, District XXV. Shalom .....
