How come they didn’t catch the killers yet ?

A Close Community Of Friends
July 8, 2017 8:13 am

it was an outpouring of love and affection. I absolutely agree with this article how beautiful it was to see people from so many walks of life bonded together, and bonded is what we shall remain. Through this sad experience, and now making sure we share Aaron’s passions, some new friendships were made, some old ones that were broken were renewed, and hopefully we’re all a little smarter and maybe a little more vigilant in letting those closest to us know that we’re there for them.

Thank you for the beautiful article

The explanation of the meaning of a single language was fascinating to me. What a beautiful world it would be if we all spoke the same tongue. Aaron made it possible, if only for a brief moment.

The police are actively working this case.I don’t want to jeopardize anything so I will be vague. I was there when the detectives called with news. It takes less energy to love then to hate. Try it someday.

Aaron Rajman was my hero

He was the only active frum MMA fighter. I’m a big MMA fan & to see him go into the octagon wearing a yarmulke and tzitzit was the coolest thing to me. There’s not a lot of frum MMA fighters out there so he was my guy. He was my hero. I loved him I am a huge fan of his & I was really looking forward to meeting him & training with him 1 day. This is overwhelmingly sad & tragic.He was the definition of a mentch what a good person. He will be missed so much. Mendel E

Thank you for the article.

Aaron was so special to his friends that my son drove down from school in UCF Orlando for the funeral and went back there for class on Friday. Why? Because his friend Aaron would have done the same for all of his friends, goodbye sweet boy, you are missed.

Re: To poster #2 – THANK YOU for speaking up!! We need to start a new trend on social media. Every time someone like poster #2 comments out of arrogance and ignorance, we need to speak up and call it out! It’s so easy to bash teachers, administrators, parents, shluchim, bale-battim, working yungeleit, kollel yungeleit, etc. etc. But most of the time, we DON’T know what is going on behind the scenes and posters are making judgmental, “arm-chair coach” calls. It’s time for the poison to STOP! Ahavas Yisroel means to be tolerant of the people that you DISagree with… Read more »

As someone who grew up with Aaron obm and watched him grow over the years he truly was an inspiration and role model to our children and each other. He gave of his time and himself to help others. This entire situation is honestly tragic. No parent should have to bury their child. May you continue your holy fight in heaven and bring Moshiach Immediatly Aaron. To poster #2. You clearly have nothing to do with the Florida PD they are some of the most dedicated people I have the privilege of knowing. I invite you to take some of… Read more »

Rabbi Granat, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with all of us. I had the honor of meeting Aaron a couple times at Hebrew Academy drop off in the morning. Such a sweet and soft-spoken soul.

florida pd as usual will do nothing

already saying not a hate crime bs! nothing will be done & no real effort to catch the killers just like wiith Raksin. Killing a religious Jew is no big deal to them If he was a musliim all hell would be breaking loose & the killers would be known & maybe already in custody
