1,000 people attend prayer service for New Square arson victim
About 1,000 people attended a prayer service yesterday for Aron Rottenberg in New Square.
Rottenberg received burns to 50 percent of his body after police say he was attacked last month by Shaul Spitzer, 18, over what synagogue he chose to worship at.
The service was held at the same synagogue Rottenberg chose not to pray at.
Police say they are also investigating other possible instances of threats or intimidations toward Rottenberg.
The attorney for Rottenberg says he will likely remain at the Westchester Medical Center Burn Unit for another two to three weeks.
