    The Jewish man spit on and harassed by a pair of Syrian nationals in Germany earlier this week has been identified as the Rabbi of the Jewish community in Berlin, Rabbi Yehuda Tiechtel.

    The incident occurred last Shabbos, German media outlets reported, after Rabbi Tiechtel led a prayer service in a synagogue in the Wilmersdorf district of western Berlin.

    After he left the Shul, Rabbi Tiechtel was confronted by two Syrian men, ages 19 and 17.

    The two men spit on Rabbi Tiechtel and hurled anti-Semitic epithets.

    Rabbi Tiechtel was with one of his children at the time of the incident.

    Police were called to the scene and detained one of the two suspects, and later opened an investigation into the incident.

    On Wednesday, the Jewish community of Berlin revealed that Rabbi Tiechtel had been the victim of the incident in question.

    Rabbi Tiechtel said that anti-Semitism had “developed a life” of its own in Germany, but emphasized that most Germans remain committed to uprooting anti-Semitism.

    “Unfortunately, we have to state that the aggressions against Jews have developed a life of their own both in the schoolyards and on the streets of Berlin,” said Rabbi Tiechtel.

    “But I remain convinced that most people in Berlin do not want to accept this aggression against Jews as a sad part of everyday Jewish life. Most people in Berlin want Jewish people to be able to live their Judaism openly without being afraid of being insulted, spat at or even beaten. Of course, we will not hide now, but continue to build on love, tolerance, dialogue and education.”
