Drama At Rachmistrivka Beis Medrash In Yerushalayim; Man With Knife Demands To See Rebbe, Displays Knife
(Tuesday, September 6th, 2011)
A bit over a month has elapsed since the tragic murder of the Baba Elazar ZATZAL and another incident has already occurred, this time in the Rachmistrivka Beis Medrash in the Gush 80 area of Yerushalayim. B’chasdei Hashem, this case ended with an arrest, not a murder chas v’sholom.
On Monday night a young male arrived at the beis medrash explaining he wished to see the Rebbe Shlita, seeking his advice on an important matter. This was during a time not set aside for the Rebbe to meet with the tzibur.
The Rebbe’s Gabbai R’ Mordechai Asher Kuperman explained this simply was not possible since the Rebbe’s maintains a stringent schedule. The male, described as a young Sephardi threatened the gabbai, that he would stab him, but R’ Kuperman remained firm and began escorting the disgruntled youth outside.
Then, suddenly, he brandished a knife. Police were summoned as the male continued verbally threatening; all the while he was brandishing a knife. Prior to the arrival of police he fled.
A large police force arrived and began searching for the suspect, finding him hiding in the area.

וואסערע געשרייבעכטץ איז דאס? ער האט נישט געקענט שרייבען "man" אדער "guy"? ווי קומט דא אריין א "זכר"? זעמער שוין אינגאנצען משוגע? און איך רעד "מנובלות"!!!
Are we going totally crazy? What kind of writing is this? who uses the word male in this context?What's wrong with "man" or "guy"? And I am the one talking "meuvolos"!!!
The Check Is In The MALE
