A rabbi, identified as Rabbi Joseph Raskin by NBC news, was shot and killed on his way to synagogue Saturday morning, in North Miami Beach.
He was shot by 2 youths at 9am, and airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center, where he died.
The two fled, one on foot, and one on a bike.
A reader updated us that today’s murder took place two blocks away from a Miami synagogue, which was vandalized with swastikas and the word “Hamas” last week.
The area has a large Orthodox-Jewish community, and a number of synagogues.
Raksin was from Brooklyn, NY and was in Florida visiting relatives.
