An 83-year-old Israeli rabbi was struck and killed by a driver in Brooklyn yesterday.
Voz Iz Neias reports that Rabbi Mosha Adler, from Jerusalem, was hit on Avenue J and East 10th Street in Midwood, and died at Lutheran Medical Center.
An NYPD spokesperson confirmed a Wednesday collision at that location, and said the victim was declared “not likely to survive,” having suffered lacerations to the head. Queries to DCPI and Brooklyn’s 66th Precinct, which we were told handled the call, yielded no further details.
The location where Rabbi Adler was mortally wounded lies in David Greenfield’s City Council district and is represented by Dov Hikind in the state Assembly. We await their video statements expressing outrage over this tragedy and the continuing loss of life on Brooklyn streets.
