Stabbing in Chabad 770. Dec. 9, 2014

A man armed with a knife seriously wounded a yeshiva student at the Chabad “770” headquarters in Brooklyn around 2 a.m. Tuesday morning (EDT).

The attack occurred in the study hall, where security cameras transmitted the attack on line to police, who immediately arrived.


They ordered the attacker to drop his knife and then shot him in the stomach when he refused.
The knife-wielding man described as a black man, lost consciousness.

The victim was stabbed in the head, neck and abdomen. Prayers for his recovery should be made for Levi Yitzchak ben Raizel, reportedly an Israeli from Beitar Illit in western Gush Etzion.

  1. Pinchas Barry Goldstein shame on them for no guard or door locked. What's the matter not enough money for security measures?They think no harm will ever come and take no precautions. Wishful hopeless hopers.

  2. openid the money is spent on books, teachers etc. trust in G-d is what will protect us. every dollar spent on security takes away from learning and losing your life is less important than lacking emunah. it's very difficult to prevent an incident like this no matter how much you spent. btw chabad is not "hopers," they are faithful, observant, kind people.

  3. The frum boy should have a complete Rufuah,we should all daven for him!! To watch this Cop murder that mentally ill man while he was already down should be brought up on charges or shot!!!..We dont need mentally ill serial killers as cops either…

  4. i'm glad the bum was apprehended and brought down. But i didnt i appreciate the nonstop barrage of profanity that the cop unleashed in a holy jewish place. surely a well trained cop doenst not need to recite the f word as a mantra in order to do their job. and if you look at the other video from another angle, it sounds like the cop shot him more than twice after he was down.
