We are heartbroken to inform you that one of the victims of yesterday’s horrific attack in Jersey City was our own dedicated @Bike4Chai & @Achim_Byachad volunteer, Moshe Hersh Deutch HY”D.

The news cycle is already moving on from this.
The shooters were black and therefore won’t be dwelled on by the media.
“Four people were murdered on Tuesday, and two assailants killed, in an anti-Semitic attack on a kosher market in Jersey City, New Jersey. It was one of the deadliest attacks against Jews on American soil in the history of the United States; if the perpetrators had succeeded in detonating a pipe bomb they had built, the carnage could have been even worse. And yet the shooting attracted remarkably little attention at first and even now barely seems to be penetrating the national conscience.
Perhaps that’s because, in the House of Representatives, the impeachment articles against President Donald Trump are nearing a vote. Or because William Barr, the attorney general, has launched a set of broadsides against the FBI. Or perhaps the relative silence about the Jersey City massacre is due to the fact that it does not fit a neat political narrative. …”
“An assailant involved in the prolonged firefight in Jersey City, N.J., that left six people dead, including one police officer, was linked on Wednesday to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, and had published anti-Semitic posts online, a law enforcement official said.
The violent rampage on Tuesday took place largely at a kosher supermarket where three bystanders were killed. The authorities now believe that the store was specifically targeted by the assailants, whom they identified as David N. Anderson, 47, and Francine Graham, 50.
Mr. Anderson appeared to have a connection to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, though the extent of his involvement in that group remains unclear, the law enforcement official said. …”
“Religious writings on hate could be key to learning what motivated a pair of rifle-wielding suspects to kill three people in an attack on a Jewish market in Jersey City, New Jersey, after they allegedly gunned down a police detective in a cemetery, law enforcement sources told ABC News.
The suspects, David Anderson, 47, and Francine Graham, 50, were killed in a shootout with police on Tuesday but left a trail of potential evidence investigators are combing through to determine why they allegedly killed Jersey City Detective Joseph Seals and targeted the Jersey City Kosher Supermarket, officials said. …”
Can you think of a mass shooting that involved two White Nationalist shooters?
