A male suspect repeatedly stabbed Chabad emissary, Rabbi, Shlomo Noginsky, outside of the Shaloh House Jewish Day School in Brighton, Massachusetts, which primarily serves the Boston area’s Russian Jewish community.
Noginsky is a rabbi and teacher at the Shaloh House where the summer day camp was in session, reported Chabad.org. He is being treated at a hospital and is in stable condition.
“We are all very shaken by what happened and ask for you to please keep Rabbi Noginski in your prayers,” Shaloh House director Rabbi Don Rodkin said in a statement.
“This afternoon’s horrific stabbing of a rabbi outside of Shaloh House…has sent a shockwave of fear and anxiety throughout the community,” said Robert Trestan, regional director of ADL New England. “We are grateful for the rapid response of Boston and Brookline Police and emergency responders.”
Trestan added: “healing from this incident will require accountability, justice and answers.”
