An American rabbinical student was attacked in Berlin in what police consider an anti-Semitic attack. Police spokesman Uwe Kozelnik told JTA that the student, Mendel D., 21, was slapped in the face by one of four young men of Arab appearance Sunday evening while walking on the Kurfurstendam. “He was recognized because of his clothing and because of his earlocks,” Kozelnik said.
