Student beaten outside Ozar Hatorah school in Paris


A Jewish boy reportedly was beaten outside the Ozar Hatorah school in Paris by youths shouting anti-Semitic epithets.

The incident occurred Monday outside the school, which the 12-year-old victim attends. He was not seriously injured.

The attack came a week after a gunman opened fire on the Ozar Hatorah school in Toulouse, killing a rabbi and his two young sons, and the daughter of the school’s principal.

The boy in Paris reportedly was beaten about 100 yards away from the school, out of sight of police who have been guarding the school since last week’s attack in Toulouse.

Chasidic man beaten in New York


A Chasidic man wearing traditional clothing was beaten in New York in what appears to be a hate crime.

Joel “Joseph” Weinberger, 26, was returning home in the evening on Thanksgiving from his place of employment at a Brooklyn yeshiva in the Williamsburg neighborhood when he reportedly was attacked by three men.

Weinberger reportedly offered the men his wallet, but they beat him severely and ripped apart his religious articles.

The police have not been able to categorize the attack as a hate crime since they have not yet been able to interview Weinberger at length, WCBS-TV in New York reported.
Weinberger reportedly did not get a good look at his attackers.
