Chief Rabbi of Munich attacked by four Muslims

The Chief Rabbi of Munich, Rabbi Shmuel Aharon Brodman, was attacked on Thursday evening by four Muslims who shouted derogatory remarks toward him.

Rabbi Brodman, a member of the Conference of European Rabbis, called the police who launched a manhunt for the attackers.

Yaakov Hagoel, Vice Chairman of the World Zionist Organization, responded to the anti-Semitic attack, “Anti-Semitic incidents have become routine and part of the daily routine that Jews around the world are going through.”

“Unfortunately, as I have said, once we can roam the streets again after the coronavirus passes, anti-Semitic incidents will rise and become even more physical and violent, and here we are witnessing an anti-Semitic attack. I urge the authorities to deal with the perpetrators. Jewish blood is not cheap,” added Hagoel.

Last year, a rabbi and his two sons were spit on and verbally attacked as they left a synagogue in Munich.

In 2019, Germany recorded the highest number of anti-Semitic crimes nationwide since 2001. Police registered 2,032 anti-Semitic crimes, including two killings, up 13% from 2018.
