Stabbing At Hanukkah Celebration

The following is a developing story. At Rabbi Chaim Rottenberg's house, a Hanukkah party was being held on the seventh night of Hanukkah (Dec 29. 2019).  An assailant walked in, attacking and stabbing five Jews with a machete. Please join us and show anti-Semitism will not be tolerated. Ethnic-based hate crimes are disturbing, vicious and tragic - it affects everyone. This violent attack is unfortunately one of many in an alarming uptick of anti-Semitism. Funds are important as they pay for medical wounds, post-traumatic stress therapy, Synagogue repairs and any other urgencies the victims and congregation may need at this time. Please stand in solidarity - Hanukkah is the festival of lights, join us in showing the world that darkness will not prevail and please assist those affected by donating to this page. Funds are directly sent to the non-profit of Congregation Netzach Yisrael-Kosson in Forshay.
