Upper East Side cafe's barista's ALL quit in protest over Jewish owner's ... trends now

The baristas at an Upper East Side café all quit in protest over the Jewish owner's support of Israel. But instead of closing for the day, the Café is now busier than ever - with customers lined up around the block to show their support. 

The owner of Caffe Aronne, Aaron Dahan, was left short-staffed Tuesday morning after his baristas quit on him when he addressed the 'Free Palestine' pins they wore to work.

Dahan, 25, said a total of five baristas walked out since the Oct. 7 terrorist attack in Israel, in which Hamas slaughtered 1,400 Israelis and kidnapped over 200 civilians - including at least 13 American citizens and 23 Thai Farm workers.

Since the massacre, Dahan has displayed an Israeli flag at the café and started a fundraiser for Magen David Adom, the Israeli Red Cross.    

'Our staff was young. They think they know everything, liberal, college-educated,' Dahan, who is Jewish, told The New York Post on Tuesday.

'They think we're supporting genocide, we're supporting colonialism. They know the keywords but they don't really know what they mean,' he added. 

Dahan told The Post he was disappointed in the resignation of his staff, which he considered family. 

Before they quit, Dahan made an effort to sit down with his baristas and speak with them about their differing views.

'We knew our staff. We knew they were thinking these things. I said, 'Let's go for dinner. Let's sit. Let's ask questions. Let's learn. Let's realize that we're not all here trying to kill each other,' Dahan said to The Post.

Aaron's mother, Peggy Dahan, said she was bombarded with emails Tuesday morning, announcing the resignation of all the baristas. Despite her son's suggestion to close for the day, Peggy refused. 

She said the community has come out to help and show support. There's a line down the block with people from the neighborhood expressing support for the café that's been open for less than a year, she said, expressing her gratitude.
