Suspected hate crimes case rocks N.Y. Hasidic sect

| |

A lawyer for a man who was badly burned at his home in a Hasidic Jewish village is seeking a federal investigation into what he calls “hate crimes” by the community’s religious leadership.

He said the attack evoked “the Ku Klux Klan and Nazi Germany.”

Early Sunday morning, Aron Rottenberg suffered third-degree burns over half his body when he confronted behind his house a man who was carrying a flammable liquid in a bottle. Rottenberg is currently hospitalized in New York City.
