The names of the victims of today’s deadly shooting at a Kosher Supermarket in Jersey City were released late Tuesday evening.
Murdered was 24 year old Moshe Hersh Deutsch. He was the son of Shulem (Abe) Deutsch from UJO Williamsburg, a leader in the Satmar community.
Also murdered was Mrs. Leah Mindel Ferencz, 33. She was a mother of 3 and the wife of R’ Moishe Dovid Ferencz, the owner of the kosher supermarket, and the daughter of Binyomin Hersh Greenfeld.
Earlier in the day, Moishe Ferencz spoke with Chabad Rabbi Moshe Schapiro, who shops at the kosher store and attends a Shul next door, Schapiro told the AP.
“He told me he had just walked out of the store into the synagogue not five feet away just before this happened, and then he couldn’t get back for hours,” Schapiro said. “His wife was inside the store. He said, ‘I hope my wife is safe.’”
Also murdered was a police officer, identified as Detective Joseph Seals, a 13-year police veteran, husband, and father of five.
