A 22-year-old rabbinical student from Israel is in stable condition after being stabbed by a man who rushed into the synagogue at Chabad-Lubavitch Headquarters early Tuesday morning and attacked the student.

Following the attack the perpetrator was shot by police after he refused to drop his weapon and charged at a police officer. The attacker was pronounced dead after being taken to a local hospital.

The victim was identified as Levi Rosenblat, from Beitar Ilit, Israel. The public was asked to pray for the speedy recovery of Levi ben Raizel.

The perpetrator was killed in the incident.
A deranged knife-wielding man heard screaming, “I want to kill the Jew!” stabbed a 22-year-old Israeli student in the face at a Brooklyn synagogue before he was shot dead by responding police officers early Tuesday, officials and stunned witnesses said.

Cops repeatedly ordered the man, identified by police sources as Calvin Peters, 49, to put down the nine-inch blade he jammed into Levi Rosenblatt head during a furious exchange in the basement of the Chabad-Lubavitch World Headquarters on Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights at 1:45 a.m.

Peters put the knife down, but then picked it up again and charged the officers before he was shot in the stomach, cops and witnesses said.

"He was going towards the officer,” witness Yechi Hamlech, 19, said. “His eyes were bulging, he must have been on drugs.”

Jawa readers might remember Chabad-Lubavitch as the Synagogue that was the target of Islamist Incitement by the now defunct Islamist group Revolution Muslim with the post earning both Yousef al-Khattab and Younnes Abdullah Muhammad jail time.

The center has been the target of Islamist and antisemitic hate for quite some time.
