Today marks the 1-year anniversary of the horrific Monsey Stabbing Attack.

 

 

It was December 28, 2019, the seventh night of Chanukah, Grafton Thomas (of Orange County, NY) armed with a machete invaded the home of a rabbi in Monsey  where a Hanukkah party was underway, and began stabbing the guests. Five men were wounded, two of whom were hospitalized in critical condition. Yosef Gluck, would act heroically and confront the attacker with a table forcing him to flee the home. Later that night Thomas would be arrested by NYPD officers.
Three months after the stabbing, Yosef Neumann, aged 72, would died of his wounds. Our condolences to the Neumann family.
The Monsey Stabbing brought national and global media attention to Rockland. It is a day that will forever be a part of our Rockland history.
