Tragic deaths in our communities


Eight-month-old pays ultimate price for parents' marital troubles; wife leaves house after heated argument, husband believed to strangle their daughter

The suspects in two child murder cases were brought for remand extension hearings early Friday afternoon. Jerusalem resident Nahman Anshin, 23, was remanded for a week in custody at the capital's magistrate's court on suspicion of beating his eight-month-old baby girl, Fruma, to death.

The alleged incident occurred around 11 p.m. on Thursday night, when neighbors in the Shmuel Hanavi neighborhood heard screams coming from the apartment and called the police.

Before officers arrived, one of the neighbors and a police volunteer broke into the apartment from a balcony and claim that they saw the suspect banging his baby's head against the floor while holding her feet.


  1. This is the saddest story. Let us hope there are no protests for the release of the father.

  2. One of the issues that there is no defence for is the protests in Haredi Jerusalem whenver they kill one of their own children.
    I wonder if this was how the blood libels started - ie a few psychopath Jews killing their own kids ?
    And what moral legitimacy is there to such protests?
    EJF - whilst there is no defence to the EJF dirt, was a power, money and lust scandal.. This is on the lowest level - it is a psychopath killing their own children. Does Rav Shternbuch attack these protestors?

  3. What is wrong with all these meshugoyim who riot every time a rotzeach is apprehended?

    Is the perp from the cultish Breslov or the regular one?

  4. So Sad - especially when Rabannu Nachman ZZL was so against ever hitting a child, which was quite unusal position to have 200 years ago.
