Australian Younster Sentenced for Assaulting Rabbis in Street

One of two youths who attacked three rabbis while shouting anti-Semitic insults at them was fined 25 pounds yesterday on assault charges.

The two were part of a group which accosted the three rabbis who were on their way to the Lubavitcher Yeshiva here. Rabbi Lazar Kleinman said members of the group pulled his beard and knocked him to the ground, while shouting “Eichmann was right” and “Go back to Jerusalem.” The court imposed the fine on William Gruickshank, 19, a printer, but dismissed charges against Otto Klarfeld.
