The Jewish community in Paris mourns the loss of a young Jewish man whose life was cut short by a violent attack. Writers at JTA tell us more:
A Jewish man was killed in his apartment in Paris, where the victim’s twin brother found his lifeless body bound and with a plastic bag covering his face.
The brother of Jeremy Dahan called a locksmith to open the door of the apartment in the city’s 12th District, near the eastern suburb of Bagnolet, where Jeremy Dahan was overseeing renovations of an apartment he owns. He had hired two Moldovan workers for the job.
Police have arrested one of the workers and are searching for the second one, the JForum news site reported Thursday.
Dahan’s wife, who is pregnant with their first child, called the brother and asked him to look for her husband after he failed to return home.
This news comes only a month after the murder of a French woman and Holocaust survivor, showing that attacks against Jews are growing in France and also throughout Europe. Please pray for safety for all European Jews during this perilous time, and for comfort for the family of Jeremy Dahan.
