Breaking the Heart of Tzfat Folks

Filed under: Current Events — Reb Moshe @ 11:50 pm

A 47-year-old post office cashier was shot dead during an armed robbery in Safed on Tuesday afternoon. Three masked bandits told the cashiers to empty the till and when one of the workers refused, one of the robbers shot him in the head. An MDA team was called to the scene, on the central Hapalmah Street, but paramedics were unable to resuscitate the man.

I was just at this post office yesterday at the same time and this nice man usually exchanges my money. I feel for him and his family. What surprises me is that the man got away so easily. There is so much construction on the roads right now in this area, even me it takes 10minutes to drive away.




  1. Oy thats not nice.

    What do you mean”…even me it takes 10minutes to drive away.”? You a bad driver Moshe? ;))

  2. We can’t discuss my driving habits in public but if you look at one of the videos I did where I flimed driving to the Kinneret, and take out a stop watch, you will see 0-60 in under ________(can’t say here). Does anyone have an extra cone air filter;)?

    What I meant is that there is so much trafic, there should have been time to catch them man, especially when there are only 4 ways out from the city and only 2 of them he would have taken unless he did a switch but was probably not that smart
