Area Jewish Community Reacts To Alleged Terror Plot

| May 16, 2011

For Rabbi Eli Shifrin, the details of the Manhattan District Attorney's case against two Queens men accused of planning to blow up city synagogues unearthed old fears lying just beneath the surface.

"It takes only 1 percent of the people we don't catch for tragedy to strike our community," said Shifrin, who leads the Chabad of Little Neck. "We are just so grateful that the police caught it in time."

Shifrin was one of a chorus of prominent members of the area's Jewish community to mix gratitude for the efforts of the New York Police Department, which led the investigation resulting in charges against Ahmed Ferhani and Mohamed Mehdi Mamdouh on Thursday, with a sense that the fight against terrorism was an ongoing battle in need of more city, state and federal resources.
