Levi Rosenblatt, the 22 year old Israeli student who was stabbed in the head yesterday morning during a knife attack at the world headquarters of Chabad in Brooklyn, is reported to have regained consciousness.

Rosenblatt underwent a surgical procedure at the Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City and woke up during the night, COL Live News Service.

Rosenblatt was stabbed in the left side of his head after the knife-wielding assailant, Calvin Peters, a 50 year-old African-American man, went on a rampage at the building on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn, New York. Peters was shot dead by a police officer after refusing to surrender his knife.

Doctors had placed Rosenblatt in an induced coma, after discovering a vascular laceration that was causing internal bleeding and placing increased pressure on his brain.

US Jewish Groups Praise Tillerson’s Renewal of State Department Antisemitism Envoy

US Jewish groups reacted with praise and relief on Tuesday to the news that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is...

New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind compared the attack to last month’s atrocity at a synagogue in the Har Nof neighborhood in Jerusalem, which claimed the lives of four Jewish worshippers and an Israeli Druze policeman.

“This incident is reminiscent of Har Nof,” Hikind said, adding that “Jewish communities around the world know what 770 (a popular abbreviation of Chabad’s address at 770 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn) represents.”

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio praised the speed of the NYPD officers who arrived on the scene within moments of the attack.

De Blasio added that the NYPD would now “increase security at Jewish religious institutions across the city as a precaution” while the investigation into the Chabad attack is underway.

    Yes! Yes Victoria! Baruch Hashem that he is doing better.

  • We’ve been praying for him. Even me. And I’m not sure I believe in prayer. Please G-d, spare him for us.

  • THANK G-d. We mJEWISH LIFE MATTERS WHERE IS OBAMA? WHERE IS SHARPTON

    Rabbi’s were begging the police not to shoot the man, though he was an attempted murderer who entered the Synagogue looking to kill Jews in a premeditated hate crime. The police showed tremendous restraint until they had no choice but to act. Where are the liberal Rabbis now. ? Why no marches.? Where is the Jewish and non-Jewish community when a Jew is murdered like the Rabbi visiting Florida. ? Jews will you never learn. ? We do not riot and and steal from the community. The policeman should be praised. Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg
    ust continue to pray for him.

    This beautiful young man should be blessed with a complete recovery. If a Jew went into a church in Harlem and stabbed a person praying for absolutely no reason, there would be a bounty on all Jews and there would be rioting in the streets, but because it was a wonderful, law abiding young Jewish man who was stabbed while minding his own business, there is nothing said. I couldn’t even find a news update on how he is doing. I had to go on Facebook. Unfortunately, very few people recognize the horrific double standards that exist. GOD BLESS THE POLICE OFFICER WHO KILLED THE PERPETRATOR !!!

    B’H Levi Rosenblatt will recover from this heinous crime against him. This is another reminder that no matter where there are Jewish people in a Jewish community.or even a shul or Yeshiva…we are not safe from the mumzarim ! There must be more security and vigilance in our neighbors ,schools and shuls. Please G-d , May we have the sense to secure our safety as we live under G-d’s Torah. Amen !
