83 Year Old Man Shoved down Stairs in 770

CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn [CHI] — A drunk bochur, described as a “Tzfati”, pushed an 83-year-old man down a staircases in 770 on Motzai Shabbos. The incident began inside 770 at around 8:00pm when the drunken Tzfati, who was missing his shirt, grabbed the elderly man and shoved him down a flight of stairs.

More in the Extended Article.

A bystander called 911 and scores of cops responded along with a city ambulance who began treating the old man for his injuries. After getting a proper description of the perp, police went searching for him but couldn’t find him, yet they still filed a police report.

An eye witness said the Bochur, who was visibly intoxicated, shoved the old man down the stairs and when he came to rest on the landing proceeded to kick him.

After receiving treatment for close to an hour in an ambulance outside 770, the old man insisted he did not want to go to the hospital and went on his way.

    Chanina and Yudel must join forces and send these idiots back to Tzfat as soon as possible. And the NYPD should use necessary force to constrain them for whatever they do. They are not Lubavitchers and should not be permitted to be by 770. And take down their stupid signs,too.

    By the way, the Bochur wasn’t a tzfati, he actually was never in tzfas. He is a BT from Ramat Aviv… get your facts streight b4 you bash…

    Normally I am against pressing charges on another jew. But this is different. I feel that someone who hurts another person must be taught that there are consequenses to his actions. in our community, unfortunatly, we dont have the ability to deal with such individuals. but we sure have a responsobility to hand in such an individual to the apropriate authorities. how else does one learn how to behave in sociaty? our melamdim and yeshivos can only be Mechanech their talmidim in spiritual matters, not how to be civilized.
    if he were driving while intoxicated he’d have no excuse. he should have given his keys to someone to hold it for him. Adam Muad Liolam. if if he is not made aweare that there is a legal system amoungst humans, he will do it again.

  • 12. END THE TZFATI TERROR wrote:

    to those of you asking this ‘binyomin’ and the website about his choise to identify this terrorist as a tzfati, let me ask you all this; when this site posts an articel informing us of a muggin this website identifys the attacker as a ‘male black’ or a ‘female hispanic’ etc. why should this be any different?

    call them as you see them, a tzfati raised his hands to hit another jew inside 770, that is that.

I was in tsfas for 2 years and meet there wonderful boichrim. says that all tzfatim are terrorist, is the same thing to say that all boichrim of NY are addict, all black man is thief and all jews are greedy! this is XENOPHOBIA!!!

    This individuals action were absolutely disgusting but it would have been equally disgusting if he were from France, Australia, Europe etc…. We don’t like it when the media portrays the religious Jew as the criminal. Why is it necessary or relevant to describe this despicable persons native city. Obviously there are racist motives which is to create hatred against ALL people from that city.
    Abhorrent!!!

    Shame on you!
    The poor Tzfati, must have had a hard life!
    You “people” (if I can call you that) should not be shunning this poor victim (the Tzfati) you must have Ahavas yisroel and take him in (to your home), he may see the light and change his way, there is hope still.

    Who is in charge of the alcohol in 770? Was this person of drinking age? If not, someone in 770 should answer about why alcohol is available to people under 21. Why wasn’t hatzalah called? The lashon hara about people from the holy city of Tzefat should stop.

    It’s good the cops came. Now the victim should prosecute. He pushed & kicked the old man? That’s despicable. These barbarians need to go back to their caves & get out of town. We don’t want them here. They only cause trouble & disturb the rest of us & they give serious, respectful Bochurim a bad name.

    Deport them now!

    I agree,
    But this is that “something CHOS VSHOLOM worse” that HAS happened.

    It has happened in the past and will continue in the future, [because] there are people from OUR community who find good use for these Thugs and will always back them (for they need them for their sick Agenda). We must kill the snake by taking off it’s head! the tail just keeps growing back (new punks come and go every day/year, so you get ride of a few here and there, the sad truth is there will always be new ones. so until we go after those that are “training”/sending them it a loosing battle.

    He should be shamed!
    Shipped home!
    Etc…

    Is there anybody in charge of these guys?
    Is there anybody that will take any responsibility?
    Will we let this guy just get away with this just so he can come back another day?

    Since when is reporting the truth biased?
    Taking the side of truth is now called “extremely biased” nice to know. CH.INFO should have sugar coted the story, maybe you could have even put added in to the story of how the old man first sucker pounced the Tzfati etc… that would have been fair and balanced.

    My friend there is something called CAUSE and EFFECT.
    the cause come BEFORE the effect.

    Another thing:
    Maybe this is their terroristic tactics, to come after anybody who is willing and able to write the TRUTH?
    It’s called intimidation! (look it up).

    “…You could have written, a drunken bocher. There is no reason to spread hate!…”

    Such a bocher I would say on him that he might as well be a Tzfati.

    Why is it important to mention that he is a Tzfati (when this could have happened to anybody etc…).

    First of all this does not happen to normal people (or in this case normal bocherim) if a person did do such a thibk then he’s not normal and might as well be a Tzfati (with the whole dress etc..). Yes you might find that a Bocher (sadly) may have lost a little control (and there is no excuse for that) and may push or shove another but to knock someone down (none the less a 83 year old man) and once down to viciously kick him continuously that only a viscous (cant even write person) Tzfati can do.
    Let’s not pretend to be stupid and dumb, these types of stories of “the Tzfatis” beating people up (even sober) are not new.
    All those so called “peace lovers” that are trying to protect and excuse (or blame this site for mentioning that he is a tzfati) also have an AGENDA, other wise they would be denouncing such behaver (as we see their problem is not with what the Tzfati did but with this web site for writing that he was a Tzfati).

    There are so many nice stories highlighting the posotivity in lubavitch in CH and around the world, stress on that, you know your website reaches the masses and think twice.
    You litarly made a story out of nothing here

  • 34. fed up wrote:

    This is not a bochur this is a beast!
    These tzefatim should not be refered to as Lubavitch, Chabad, Bochur or ever frum. The Yeshivahs who are breading them do not deserve to have the name Tomchei Tememim associated with them.

You are allowing terrorists to take over CH. What the Rebbe said about fighting for your land in Eretz Yisroel also applies to Crown Heights!

    Do you guys know what “Stereoteyping” means?

    I personally know many Tzfatim who are VERY nice guys, and have tremandous Ahavas Yisroel. More then you “American” -“Civilized” people!
    How many times do “American” “Normal” bochurim get drunk in 770 and start fighting? I saw it more then once. Alright people. Get a life and stop hating your brothers

    Nichnas Yayin Yatza Sod. When a Yid gets drunk on Purim or Simchas Torah, usually, he’s tipsy, silly and unfortuantely probably gets sick. When anyone who pushes an 83-year old man down the steps when he’s drunk, this is a sign of his true character. There have been many yomim tovim, farbrengen, chasunos, etc.. over the decades in 770. This is the first aggressive result of drinking.
    Whoever that bachur is – I don’t care where he comes from or what he’s called – should be thrown out of Crown Heights. I’m sorry, but he behaved no differently than l’havdil…What would have happened if a non-Jew threw this man down the steps? Please don’t protect criminal behavior.

    With much respect and kovod, i am wondering what a bochur needs to acomplish before he is granted K’VUTZAH status, and come with the rest of the T’mimim from erets yisroel the the dalet amos of the rebbe,
    ones we know that, we then would be able to determin how and when we get the oppurtunity and obligation to deport someone, i think maybe it could come a time that they could be sent back and loose their right to ever enter the USA, hey maybe send them to agri and get shipped back to mexico on the way back to the middle east.

    BS”D

    Seems as if the word Tzfati has gone beyond the geographic location from which it issues to mean anyone who is extreme in his meshichist beliefs and will engage in extreme behavior to defend what he perceives to be any slight against these beliefs.

    As Tzfas is an ir hakodesh and because indeed there are many decent, Chassidish bochurim and families in Tzfas even if we do not agree with some of their views, I think we need to refrain from using the term in this manner.

    Hard for me to think of a replacement term, without resorting to mikveh dressing room language…..maybe meshiggist????
