JDL Vice Chairman Ari Ephraim Rubin, 30, Suicide

By: JTA

Ari Ephraim Rubin, vice chairman of the Jewish Defense League died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on July 20.

At 30, Ari Rubin had been active in the militant JDL, rejected by mainstream Jewish organizations for its violent tactics, since his youth, and became vice chairman in 2006. He is the son of the late JDL leader Irving “Irv” Rubin.

His death was ruled a suicide by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, whose spokesman, Craig Harvey, said that a neighbor found Rubin in his car with the self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.

The report was confirmed by Sgt. Marty Morrow of the Glendora, Calif. police department, who said that no suicide note was found but that foul play was ruled out.

Attempts to reach members of his immediate family were unsuccessful.

In 2008, Ari Rubin visited Israel for the first time through the Birthright Israel program. He returned in 2010 to study at Aish HaTorah in Jerusalem, then “embracing the Orthodox Jewish lifestyle and striving to be a better Jewish man in the world.”

He is survived by his mother Shelley, younger brother Kelman, and numerous uncles, aunts and cousins. Graveside services were held on July 24 at Sholom Memorial Park in Sylmar, Calif.

In an obituary notice inserted by his extended family in the Pasadena Star-News on July 25, Ari Rubin was described as a life-long resident of Arcadia, who graduated with high academic honors from Pasadena City College and California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.

In reporting Ari Rubin’s death, the Jewish Defence League U.K. described his death as “another tragic loss for the Right Wing Jewish Leadership, first Rav Meir Kahane, then Binyamin Kahane. Irv Rubin and now his son. When will it end?”

  1. Suicide is very sad it is giving up on hope.

    The views of the JDL as written and spoken by Meir Kahane are also very sad.

    All Palestinians are lumped together as murderers rapists or their sympathizers.

    Expulsion is the prescribed solution.

    This world view is based on an idealized love of the nation which is the definition of.
    Fascism.

    It included such people as Baruch Goldstein.

    I cannot think of a greater act of Hilul Hashem that has happened than his.

    There are Palestinian murderers and many other dangerous enemies of Jews but Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu knows that Jewish fanatics are among them and must be stopped.

  3. Ruth Hirt says:

    Very sad, so young. Foul play should be taken as seriously related.

  4. I don't believe it was suicide. What background was there and was there sufficient investigation to eliminate the possibility of foul play? Was he known to be depressed or anything like that? I wish there was more information here.

  5. Ari was murdered either by arabs or by FBI, like his dad. Baruch Dayan Emet… El Nakam ve anu gam!

  6. Janice Waxman says:

    How can they be so sure it was suicide especially as Ari had become a devout Orthodox Jew? Further investigations are needed to be convinced.

  7. Anonymous says:

    Ari Rubins father died in prison. According to the prison report of his death, he was supposed to have first slashed his wrists and then fell from upper tier balcony to the floor below. A far fetched story which no one disputed. My feeling is that he was thrown off the balcony by a moslem or a white supremacist. No one ever challenged the prison report. The report on Ari should be questioned and his fathers demise should also be questioned!

  8. You are right, I won't believe it until there is a real investigation…

  9. You stated – "The views of the JDL as written and spoken by Meir Kahane are also very sad.

    All Palestinians are lumped together as murderers rapists or their sympathizers."

    This is incorrect. Whether or not the displaced Jordanians you refer to as Palestinians are considered individually or not is irrelevant. The supporters are no less dangerous and must be expelled also. Then annex the land. There is no alternative. Whatever happens to this brainwashed group of terrorists (all of them) is on their hands. This is a straight forward logical view. Anyone that convinces people otherwise is doing the brainwashing…..

  10. Seems overwhelmingly to be likely….

  11. You dude Pierrot is pretty opinionated ignorant & overall not very smart but typical of other self-hating yids. Go learn before opening mouth!
