Investigators are examining whether the attack on Argentina’s chief rabbi may have been ordered in revenge for a ruling, the Argentine daily La Nacion reported Wednesday.
Rabbi Gabriel Davidovich was beaten and seriously injured on Monday by assailants who broke into his home while he and his wife were there, taking money and personal effects. Nine of the Rabbi’s ribs were broken, affecting a lung, and he was left disfigured.
