A 99-year-old Haredi rabbi was attacked by one of his own
Rabbi Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman, the 99-year-old head of the Lithuanian ultra-Orthodox community, was attacked in his home on Wednesday morning, allegedly due to divisions within the haredi public over the local election races on Tuesday.
A 28-year-old man, a resident of Kiryat Sefer in Modiin Ilit, has been arrested over the attack. The man allegedly arrived at Shteinman's home in Bnei Brak, which is usually unlocked, and pushed and shook the elderly rabbi, and then tried to drag him from his bed to the floor. Two other rabbis who had been studying with Shteinman managed to grab the man and call the police, who arrived and arrested him.
Shteinman was not seriously injured, but because he is almost 100 years old and especially frail, a doctor was summoned to examine him.
Truly disgusting, and another example of Haredis turning against their own out of stupid inner clashes. I hope he and his aides will keep the door bolted from now on.
