Orthodox Union Executive Vice President (Chief Professional Officer) Allen Fagin is available to comment today on yet another attempt to kill Jews, this one in the early hours of the morning in which a “deranged” man shouting “I want to kill the Jew,” stabbed a student praying in the Chabad-Lubavitch synagogue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn before being killed by police.

Mr. Fagin will comment as well on ongoing efforts to secure government funds – federal, state and local – to protect Jewish institutions and all houses of worship.
