New Square rabbi condemns violence; burn victim’s family seeks federal probe

| |

Grand Rebbe David Twersky publicly denounced violence and said he’s praying for Aron Rottenberg’s recovery from Sunday’s near-fatal arson attack in his community, but the victim’s family on Friday rejected the overture and blamed the rabbi for inciting the attack by a teenage assistant who slept in his home.

The family said in a statement that the Skver Hasidim’s rabbi “gave the clear signals to continue with this terror against any non-believers of him. As this attacker came directly from his own inner circle, the rabbi’s personal butler, who personally knows best of the rabbi’s will and desires firsthand.”
