Residents of a wealthy New York City suburb complained that a local vendor’s holiday decorations were too Jewish-looking. Chappaqua jewelry-store owner Tara Caverzasi paid $3,000 for 50 banners for the town’s downtown business district, with blue banners with white snowflakes and the word “welcome.” But dozens of residents called Town Hall to complain, saying the colors were those of the Israeli flag and that at least one of the snowflakes looks like a Star of David.
