Chabad Representative Stabbed, Assailant in Custody

This afternoon, Chabad representative Rabbi Shlomo Noginski was stabbed multiple times outside the Shaloh House Chabad Center in Brighton, Mass. Rabbi Noginski serves as a Rabbi and teacher at the Shaloh House.

The suspect allegedly approached him, drew a firearm and attempted to force him to his car. After a struggle, the assailant stabbed Rabbi Noginski multiple times. The assailant was quickly apprehended by Boston Police.

Speaking to Lubavitch.com from his hospital bed, where he is currently undergoing care for his critical wounds, Rabbi Noginski said. “I am grateful to the Boston Police Department for their rapid response, and relieved that the perpetrator is in custody. I am looking forward to returning to my work as soon as possible.”

Rabbi Dan Rodkin, director of Shaloh House, said: “We are moved by the outpouring of support from the community. We are working closely with Law Enforcement to get a clearer picture of what happened, and will not comment on the motive while the investigation is ongoing. 

“We are following the situation closely, and continue to make security a priority,” said Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, Chairman of the Chabad-Lubavitch educational and social services divisions. “The family of Chabad representatives worldwide are praying for Rabbi Noginski’s speedy recovery.”
