Former Congregant Threatened To Shoot Up Chabad Center

Alfredo Sanchez, 43, was arrested by the Lee County Sheriff's Office for threatening to carry out a mass shooting at Chabad Lubavitch of Southwest Florida. The oddest part is that he and his family were regulars at the center. "We had no inkling," says Rabbi Yitzchok Minkowicz. Full Story, Video

Seems like he’s not well

but the big question is, Is he Jewish, his wife? They may think they are but may not actually be.

The name does not sound Jewish. They should investigate who sent him

Many Sephardic Jews have Spanish names. Also it’s not our job to be gatekeepers unless there are people who are actively trying to infiltrate and convert people to Christianity.

It’s one thing to say that I’m sure the rabbi checked into it if he’s Jewish.the fact that you’re saying that it’s not our job to be gatekeepers it is everyone’s job (Especially a rabbi of a synagogue)to be gatekeepers specially If he puts on the straps on him and calls them up to the Torah

No, it is not our job

When someone comes into a shul and says he’s Jewish we do not investigate him. We call him to the Torah, we count him in a minyan, and if it’s not shabbos we put tefilin on him. We only investigate if he wants to marry someone we know to be Jewish.

“Felon in Possession” is of interest to Law Enforcement, but, in this day and age, says absolutely nothing about whether this man was intent to harm the congregants, or to PROTECT them. This man is going to prison, almost certainly for years. His family is ruined. Are we seeing the just, and provident, short-circuiting of a massacre? Or, are we seeing a well-intended, but too-trusting guardian, being punished for disobeying the government? So far, we have no idea. BTW, in a free society, the “large” amount of ammunition breathlessly displayed represents maybe an hour or two at the range. Color… Read more »
