With great sadness and pain we inform you of the murder of Aaron Rajman, 25, a member of Chabad of West Boca Raton, Florida, by a number of unidentified men who broke into his home.
Rajman was a professional Mixed Martial Artist and athlete, one of the only orthodox Jews in the league. Born in the Bronx, New York, he lived in Boca Raton, Florida.
He grew up attending Chabad of West Boca Raton, where he resided with his mother and siblings until his murder at around 10:30pm Monday night.
His mother and siblings were not home at the time of the attack.
Rabbi Zalman Bukiet, spiritual leader of Chabad of West Boca Raton, said that the news came as a shock to his tight-knit community, as they all knew Aaron as a sensitive, caring and kindhearted soul.
Aaron is survived by his mother, Lauren, as well as his two brothers and four sisters. He is predeceased by his father, who tragically passed away several years ago due to ill health.
In a written statement just before 9 a.m. Tuesday, PBSO said the victim died, and the case is being investigated as a homicide.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
