Anti-Semitic’ Firefighter Assigned To Orthodox Jewish Community


A former FDNY commissioner’s son who once tweeted “I like Jews about as much as hitler” will join a firehouse in the middle of Orthodox Jewish Brooklyn, The Post has learned.

Joseph M. Cassano, 28, the son of ex-commissioner Salvatore Cassano, graduated from the Fire Academy on Wednesday and was sent to Engine 247 on 60th Street.

  1. Are there any Jewish firefighters? In boro Park? We must take care of our selves .as my 2nd grade rebbe said- beggars can’t be choosers

  2. So this is the son of Sal Cassano who has been a frequent guest on WABC radio’s Sunday morning show Religion on the Line with Rabbi Joe. Buddy-buddies so to speak. You can never tell from under which woodwork they will come!

  3. The Jewish Community is to blame. We had many great Askunim who really were ready to help and did help. Along came a few “Buffers ” who were looking to become bigwigs and now we have zero say in the community. Wake up and get rid of these fake Askunim which belong in Jail!!!
