Boston Police investigate stabbing of rabbi, July 2021

Even as anti-Semitism seems to spread with each day, the latest incident in the United States shocked us here at Stand for Israel. As CBS in Boston reports, the Jewish community needs us to stand with them more than ever after a Boston rabbi was stabbed:

The Anti-Defamation League of New England is calling for a hate crime investigation into the stabbing of Rabbi Shlomo Noginski, saying there are indicators of antisemitism in the attack outside a Jewish school in Brighton Thursday afternoon.

“Facts emerging from the stabbing of a Rabbi in Brighton, MA yesterday include multiple indicators pointing towards antisemitism,” ADL New England regional director Robert Trestan said in a statement. “We call on the Boston Police Department Civil Rights Unit to investigate yesterday’s violent attack as a hate crime. Boston’s Jewish community is angry, living in fear and needs answers, accountability and security…”

“A Jewish saying says, ‘A little bit of light pushes away a lot of darkness. Good has much more power than evil…’“

Let us keep Rabbi Noginski in our prayers, that God provide swift and total healing. And let us keep God’s people, the Jewish people, in our prayers, as well, that they find His protection from persecution and violence, and that they know that friends around the world stand with them against anti-Semitism.
