Prayer service held for New Square arson attack victim
A prayer service was held tonight for Aron Rottenberg after he suffered burns to 50 percent of his body in an alleged arson attack over where he chose to pray.
Police say Rottenberg was attacked by Shaul Spitzer, 18, because he chose to pray at a local senior center instead of the town's main synagogue.
The prayer service was held at the synagogue which Rottenberg chose not to pray at.
Ramapo police, along with the FBI, are investigating the attack along with other accusations of threats and harassment against Rottenberg leading up to the attack.
