Aharon Rottenberg Discharged from the Hospital


aharon-rottenberg-new-squareAharon Rottenberg of Rockland County has been released from the hospital. Aharon suffered burns over 50 percent of his body last month when he tried to stop an attacker from fire-bombing his house.

Aharon’s attorney says his client hasn’t returned home, but is staying in an undisclosed location in the area.

On May 22, Aharon was burned when an incendiary device exploded as he wrestled with an 18-year-old who had come to burn down the Rottenberg home.

Rottenberg has filed an $36 million lawsuit. Rottenberg claims a campaign of intimidation was orchestrated that led to the arson attack that burned half of his body. He says he was targeted.

Rottenberg is being represented by civil-rights attorney Michael Sussman.

The 18-year-old has been charged with arson and attempted murder.

Rottenberg had been recovering at Westchester Medical Center. He suffered third-degree burns over half his body.

  1. I hope Matzav continues to report good news. I hope Matzav reports every time a Yid is discharged from a hospital! (Otherwise I’m not sure why it is reporting this Yid in particular.)

  2. Re.comment #2. If you’re not sure why Matzav is reporting this ongoing story, I strongly suggest that you get up and smell the roses. It’s news. Keep up the good work Matzav.

  3. When did it become $36 million? (Not that he doesn’t deserve that and more for what was done to him and his family)
