The Chief Rabbi of Munich, Rabbi Shmuel Aharon Brodman, was attacked on Thursday evening by four Muslims who shouted derogatory remarks toward him.

Rabbi Brodman, a member of the Conference of European Rabbis, called the police who launched a manhunt for the attackers.

Yaakov Hagoel, Vice Chairman of the World Zionist Organization, responded to the anti-Semitic attack, "Anti-Semitic incidents have become routine and part of the daily routine that Jews around the world are going through.”

"Unfortunately, as I have said, once we can roam the streets again after the coronavirus passes, anti-Semitic incidents will rise and become even more physical and violent, and here we are witnessing an anti-Semitic attack. I urge the authorities to deal with the perpetrators. Jewish blood is not cheap,” added Hagoel.

Last year, a rabbi and his two sons were spit on and verbally attacked as they left a synagogue in Munich.

In 2019, Germany recorded the highest number of anti-Semitic crimes nationwide since 2001. Police registered 2,032 anti-Semitic crimes, including two killings, up 13% from 2018.
