A horrible tragedy is unfolding in the Jewish community of Cleveland, Ohio.
Although there are many unconfirmed rumors viral on social media, what VINnews can confirm is the tragic death of Yossi Bialo, OB”M, 34 years old. He suffered a gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at his home on S. Green Road.
Rabbi Bialo was a kosher supervisor at Menorah Park, an assisted living facility in Beachwood, and a beloved member of the Cleveland Chabad community.
He is survived by his wife, Elli, and two children.
The entire home has been cordoned off by Police as they investigate this incident.
