BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A vigil was held for Rabbi Shlomo Noginski who was stabbed Thursday outside of the Jewish Day School on Chestnut Hill Avenue.

Acting Boston Mayor Kim Janey, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins, the regional director of the Anti-Defamation League and other community leaders spoke at the vigil Friday morning to show support for the rabbi while he recovers in the hospital.

Noginski was stabbed eight times and ran away to a park across the street for safety.

“Any attack on our community is an attack on all of us,” Janey said.

According to Boston Police, 24-year-old Khaled Awad was arrested in connection with the stabbing on charges of assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon and assault and battery on a police officer.
