Rabbi’s attackers identified



Ukrainian authorities reportedly identified the four attackers of a Dnepropetrovsk rabbi.

A special unit of the Secret Service and Ministry of Interior Affairs named the assailants who severely beat Rabbi Dov-Ber Baitman, a teacher at the Jewish educational center Shiurey Torah and the anchor of the local Jewish television show “Video-HiTaS,” on Jan. 24.

The break in the case was reported on the Dnepropetrovsk Jewish community’s Web site, www.djc.com.ua

During the attack after evening classes at the educational center, the suspects also shouted anti-Semitic slurs at Baitman, a Lubavitch-Chabad emissary.
