32-year-old Rabbi Yehoshua Lefkowitz was walking down the block at approximately 3 PM on President Street between Utica Avenue and Schenectady Avenue, when he saw an unknown man who said “What are you looking at?.”

The assailant punched the man in the head and the face resulting in injuries that required hospital treatment.

Rabbi Lefkowitz serves as a Rabbinic intern at the Great Neck Synagogue, in Great Neck, NY. He was supposed to spend Shabbos with the congregation, before the assault derailed his plans.

According to an email sent out to congegrants by Rabbi Polakoff, the injuries were thankfully not as severe as they could have been.

Is he white. Can you define white. Are you a racist if you say you think the perp is black or you have to say a person of color.
