North Miami Beach Rabbi Shot to Death on Way to Synagogue


60-year-old Rabbi Yoseph Raksin was shot on his way to his synagogue this morning (Shabbat) in Miami Beach, Florida. Raksin was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center where he passed away.

The two shooters fled the scene, one on a bike and one by foot, according to police. However, police do not yet have a description of the suspects, and have not determined if this is a hate crime

Apparently today’s murder took place two blocks away from a Miami synagogue, which last week had been vandalized with swastikas and the word “Hamas”.
