The Chief Rabbi of Argentina Rabbi Gabriel Davidovich was brutally beaten in his home in Buenos Aires in the early hours of Monday morning and has been hospitalized with serious injuries according to the AMIA Jewish community center.
Davidovich’s wife was tied up during the home invasion. The assailants stole money and other possessions from the home while also telling Davidovich “We know that you are the AMIA Rabbi.”
AMIA described the attack as “alarming” and called on the authorities to quickly investigate the assault.
