Baltimore Yeshiva: Anti-Semitic Incident Blown Out of Proportion


rav-slanger-baltimoreIt was previously reported on Matzav that a man, possibly of Middle Eastern descent, shot at frum Yidden with a BB gun and blasted a hole in a window in the Baltimore area the first day of Rosh Hashanah.

The incident occurred along Old Pimlico Road, about 9 miles northwest of downtown Baltimore.

The man drove by Bais Hamedrash and Mesivta of Baltimore, Rav Zvi Dov Slanger’s yeshiva, while a number of Yidden were walking and allegedly yelled, “Jews, Jews, Jews” as he fired with what appeared to be was a BB gun. The pellets missed the targets, some of whom were children

Administrators at the yeshiva, however, now say that the incident has been greatly exaggerated, as the boys who were involved state that it is unclear what the perpetrator yelled. In addition, there was no damage to the yeshiva building.
