misinzovA Chabad student was murdered two weeks ago in the Ukraine and his body was cut up into ten pieces, according to reports released to the media last night. Police were reportedly investigating whether the murder was an act of anti-Semitism.

News sources reported that the victim, Aryeh Leib Misinzov, was a 25-year-old student at the Lubavitcher Yeshiva in Kiev.

Police found pieces of Misinzov’s body in a suburb of the Ukrainian capital, sources said, adding that he was kidnapped and murdered by a gang member on Hitler’s birthday.

The gang leader was reportedly undergoing questioning by Kiev police.

According to Chabad sources, the Ukrainian chief rabbi, Rabbi Moshe Reuvein Asman, was in Israel at the time of the murder, and cut his trip short in order to arrange for the body’s release and burial.

  1. Is there any doubt? Look at the facts:
    1 He was kidnapped on Hitlers birthday.
    2 He was murdered by Nazis. The police have the leader in custody.
    3 His body was mutilated R”L
    This is the worst form of Jew hatred. May Hashem avenge his blood.

  2. Does the headline really have to mention the fact that this heilige neshoma who died al kiddush hashem r”l; was mutilated!!! isn’t this a goyish concept to put the most eye catching aspect of the story in the headline regardless of the anguish it does (or should!!) Cause us as fellow yidden !!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I agree with “too gory” !!
    This little tidbit of information is unnecessary & completely inapropriate especially for a headline!!!

  4. Wasn’t there a story in Tanach, where someone was murdered and than his body was cut up into 10 or 12 pcs. Maybe this is a message to us that the division among us and lack of achdus is not acceptable.

  5. To all who think the headlines are too gory, you are right. However people should know how inhuman and evil the murderers are and the world should see how cruel they acted because he was a jew.

  6. To #10.. “her,” not “his,” Pilegesh B’Giva, mutiliation done by her Adon to publicize what her killers did, ultimately leading o the decimation of Shevet Binyamin by the rest of klal yisrael. Oy, yidden, that we don’t know the words of our nevi’im.
