Here in America, there was a huge outpouring (and rightfully so) in response to the Kletzki (A”H) murder. There were meetings, drashos, machsom groups, ect all in an attempt to generate an awareness of what a terrible loss we as a nation just suffered, and take steps to be sure the tragedy does not happen again.
However, the stabbing of R’ Abuchatzeira seems to have gotten very little mention and very little attention here in America.
Was there a huge surge in Eretz Yisroel that was just not picked up here? If so, I’d like to hear about it. R’ Abuchatzeira deserves no less.August 8, 2011 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #796380

Nice that my post gets 5 hits (even though I have NO idea what you are referring to) but does anyone know of anything that would shed some light on my question?August 8, 2011 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #796386
sorry for hijacking your threadAugust 8, 2011 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #796387
bpt sorry for hijacking your thread its a valid question you ask.August 8, 2011 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #796388
Still clueless, but lets move on (unless someone wants to direct my attention to what the type-o was.. I can take it, really)
OTOH, my timing may not have been right, as the EY crowd is in middle of Tisha B’Av, and may not be checking the CR for a day to two.August 8, 2011 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #796389mustangriderMember
bpt, i was wondering the same thing….August 8, 2011 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #796390bezalelParticipant

Your typo is in the title…… but do we really have to correct each other for every little thing?August 10, 2011 9:13 pm at 9:13 pm #796392
OK, so now that its post-Tisha b’Av in EY, I’d like to revive this thread.
Can any of our EY members fill me in on the way the stabbing was dealt with, from a Kinos / Speeches / Machsom / that sort of thing perspective?
Unless otherwise stated, I’m inclined to say that the reaction was muted. At least that’s the attention it got here in the USA (when reading the local papers on the reporting from EY doings).
So? Can anyone tell me if there was as massive an outpouring for the loss of R’ Abuchatzeira as there was for Leiby Kletzki?
PLease note: I’m not trying to suggest that the Kletzki reaction was unwaranted. But I think R’ Abuchatzeira deserved at least that much, if not more.
Anyone have any info?
