Watch: Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, Just Out of Hospital, Speaks About Shul Shooting


When a gunman opened fire in a shul in California yesterday, killing one and injuring three others, Lori Kaye jumped between the shooter and the rabbi. Kaye, 60, was shot at the shul and died at a nearby hospital. In addition to Kaye, at least three others were wounded in the shooting at Congregation Chabad in Poway, north of San Diego. Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, 57, was shot in the hand  and suffered what looked like defensive wounds to both of his index fingers, a doctor at the Palomar Medical Center said.

In the following sudio, Rabbi Goldstein recounts what occurred:

-Reel of News


  1. The Lubavitcher shliach says after 03:40 that ‘such things happened seventy years ago’, but ‘we will not allow such things to happen here’.

    That type of talk is like those who say ‘never again’….it is like JDL talk…

    Is that the way for a Torah Yid to speak?

    We can ask Hashem for protection, but let us not all start sounding like JDL’niks.

    • You are nothing else but a sick individual. If you can take such a heartfelt emesdig interview; with such kiddush Hashem details and twist it with this comment you just made then you are a very sad story…… Life would be so much calmer for you if you just don’t judge and take it as it is. Pple just want to be inspired….let them be.

  2. Rabbi Goldstein spoke very eloquently. He made a Kiddush Hashem with that interview. I’m sure President Trump, who has been an unbelievable friend of the Jewish community will reach out to the Rabbi, at the appropriate time.

  3. To Proper Reaction for a Yid in Golus:
    Its so nice (NOT) to see that all you can contribute is to criticize other Yidden . Im sure your Rabbeim are kvelling over what a wonderful person you have become.
    When there are less jews like you who spew sinas chinam, and more Yidden like Rabbi Yisroel Golstein, who influence all the Yidden in their surroundings with ahavas chinom, than moshiach will take us put of golus.

  4. Every SheveT had their own Nusach Tefilla and their specific contribution to Klal
    Yisroel in accordance with their Soresh Neshama.
    Thank you achassidisheryid. You are on the right track.
