Asher Dahan hid knife in Tefillin


Asher Dahan, the murderer of Rabbi Elazar Abuchatzeira, took a knife from the room of the Rabbi's son and hid it in his Tefillin bag before entering the Rabbi's study. Shortly after Dahan put the knife into his pants pocket and finally stabbed Baba Elazar.

In the news, Asher Dahan rather looks like a confused nutcase. Psychiatrists had stated that the murderer shouldn't stand trial but should be taken to the next funny farm for the next years. However, the prosecutors want him to stand trial.

  1. My understanding is this is a case of revenge and hatred so I'm not sure he is nuts. When consulted by someone whose family member was abused by Dahan, the Rav said that Dahan should be reported to the police, which landed him in jail for a number of years.
