Brooklyn Street to be Named for Murdered Jamaican-Jewish Convert
Three years ago 34 year-old Yoseph Robinson was shot dead as he stood in the Brooklyn grocery store where he worked as a clerk. Robinson was shot twice by his killer and former friend Eion Klass, as he tried to grab the gun in an attempt to protect his girlfriend Lahava Wallace.
Robinson was a Jamaican convert to Judaism, who pulled himself away from a life of crime and found purpose and stability in Orthodox Judaism.
