‘Hitler Was Right’: Bochur Attacked in Boca Raton

The Jewish community in Boca Raton, FL, is on edge as police say they are investigating a possible hate crime: a 19-year-old Lubavitcher bochur was randomly attacked by an assailant who shouted that Jews belong in concentration camps and that “Hitler was right.”

From WPTV:

The victim says on Saturday a male on a bicycle passed him and shouted, “Jews should go back to Auschwitz.. Hitler was right.”  The victim responded with, “Why don’t you come back here and say that!”

The suspect rode over to the victim, repeated his statement and shoved the victim. As the victim fell, he twisted around so he landed face down and his forehead hit the ground. The victim got up and exchanged punches with the suspect, before the suspect rode off on his bicycle.

“I’m doing better. It was just a little bit nerve-wracking having someone scream at me these things,” the victim told NewsChannel 5.

The victim is studying to be a Rabbi at the Chabad Center near Mizner Park.

“We are in disbelief. Shock. Could this really happen in Boca Raton,” Rabbi Ruvi New said.

    The Rebbe told us: If Israel gives away land that Hashem helped them win in a miraculous way during the June 1967 SIX day war this will put the lives of Jews all over the world in danger.

    On a positive note: Even though The fight for Sh’Lemus Ha’Aretz seems difficult. We need to remember what it was like to fight for yiddishkeit in the Former Soviet Union (the 2nd most powerful country in the world).

    And with the Rebbe’s guidance we won. & now the Soviet Union only exists in history books.

    The Rebbe’s approach is to increase awareness and the observance of Sheva Mitzvos Bnai Noach. If someone would say that to me, I would tell him “I want to give you a blessing” and hand him a sheva Mitzvos card (which I carry for all occasions)
