WATCH: Students dug tunnel into Chabad HQ, attempt to violently prevent its sealing

In remarkable scenes, New York police prevent a group of young Chabad students from disrupting the sealing of a tunnel they apparently had secretly dug into the Lubavich movement’s headquarters.

The group entered the tunnel, apparently dug in the last year, which provided unauthorized access to the synagogue on 770 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, and started studying Torah inside it.

Cops are subsequently called in to extract the students from the tunnel. They arrest some, after the group is filmed attempting to violently protest the police action.

The Chabad movement issues a statement denouncing the students’ actions.

It isn’t clear why exactly the tunnel was built.
