Kosher Grocery Shooting

We mourn the four individuals murdered last Tuesday in Jersey City.  They were: Mindel Ferencz, co-owner of the kosher supermarket; Moshe Deutsche, rabbinical student; Douglas Michael Rodriguez, who worked at the supermarket; and Detective Joseph Seals, who was killed by the assailants prior to the attack on the  supermarket.

These are a few ways that we can honor the dead:

  • Douglas Miguel Rodriguez's family set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for funeral expenses and to send his body home to Ecuador.  Go here to donate.
  • You can Google other fundraising efforts for the Ferencz family and the family of Detective Joseph Seals.  Be very wary of scams that seem to be proliferating in the wake of this tragedy.
  • We will come together as a community on Sunday, December 15, at 3pm at the Riverdale Monument (event organized by HIR and CSAIR).
  • Rabbi Linda Shriner-Cahn invited members of the greater Riverdale community to join us to mourn the lives lost.  We encourage you to invite your neighbors to Shabbat services tonight.
