A conflict erupted at the Chabad Lubavitch World Headquarters in New York City over a secret underground tunnel found connected to a historic synagogue.

Social media posts spread baseless claims about the tunnel, including allegations of child sex trafficking, despite the lack of evidence.

The tunnel does not connect to the Jewish Children’s Museum as claimed. (Trending: Clintons Scramble To Delete Embarrassing Photo, But Were Too Slow)

The purpose and origin of the tunnel remain disputed, with some viewing it as an unauthorized passage and others as part of an expansion plan envisioned by Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.

The tunnel led to a brawl resulting in nine arrests, with charges including criminal mischief and reckless endangerment.

The situation has deeply affected the Jewish community and has been exploited by antisemitic conspiracy theorists.

“This entire episode is immensely painful for us, the Jewish community at large and all decent people,” Rabbi Motti Seligson said.

“The synagogue carries a profound significance to the Jewish people worldwide because the teachings, the Torah teachings, that emanated from it have impacted and transformed the Jewish community and society at large in a positive way,” Seligson said.

“And to see this episode exploited by antisemitic conspiracy theorists only adds pain to injury.”
