Shliach Rabbi Uriel Vigler was verbally attacked today while walking to shul on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. Rabbi Vigler, who runs the Chabad Israel Center of the Upper East Side, as well as the “B’lev Echad” organization, was assaulted with anti-Semitic slurs while walking to schachris. No physical altercation occurred and no medical attention was necessary.
His response, according to the TPS News Agency was pure Chabad: “I thought we were living in peace and tranquility in Manhattan. We won’t surrender to terror. We will continue to act with alacrity and full of love for every Jew and we will continue to spread light to the world.”
