Reward Offered For Information In Murder Of Rabbi In Miami
Posted August 10th, 2014 @ 9:28am

There has been no arrest in the murder of a rabbi shot and killed on his way to temple in Northeast Miami.

 

Police says Joseph Raksin was in town from New York visiting family.

 

As he walked to a Miami synagogue, two men approached him, there was some sort of confrontation, and they shot Raksin.

 

Neighbors called for help, as Raksin lay dying.

 

His grandchildren were walking a few blocks behind him, and witnesses say they heard the gunshot that killed their grandfather.

 

He was later declared dead at a local hospital.

 

Police have held off on labeling this a hate crime.

 

But, the Orthodox Jewish community in the area is concerned.

 

This happened just blocks away from a temple where swastikas and the word "Hamas" -- referring to Palestinian militants in the ongoing Israeli conflict-- were spray-painted on the pillars.

 

There is a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
