    Chabad Rabbi Uriel Vigler was attacked by an African-American man who physically threatened him and yelled anti-Semitic vulgarities. The assault happened on Lexington Avenue, on Tuesday morning, as the Rabbi was making his way to morning prayers (Shacharit).

    The assailant then ran away, and the rabbi did not need medical treatment.

    Rabbi Vigler filed a complaint with the New York Police Department (NYPD).

    In response to the attack, Rabbi Vigler told the TPS news agency: “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.”

    Rabbi Vigler is the rabbi of the Chabad Israel Center on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and the director of the “Balev Echad” organization which empowers IDF soldiers who were wounded while serving in the army.

    1. According to Uriel Vigler’s original post on Facebook this morning ( he made a video with his phone of the whole incident this morning), he was not physically attacked or harmed physically. He said that the assailant was VERBALLY abusive towards him, cursing him and calling him disgusting names, focusing on his Jewish appearance. This does not make any lighter of this very serious and potentially dangerous situation, but I do believe that we are above all the low standards of the general Press that reports the news today, and it is important to tell the truth always. This incident was disgusting to say the least. Inflating the truth will not get us any further than if the absolute truth would be written
