Authorities investigating after dead pig is dropped off at Lakewood Rabbi’s doorstep (PHOTOS)

An investigation is underway after a dead pig was left at the doorstep of a Lakewood Rabbi.

The small pig was left just outside the Rabbi’s door sometime over Shabbos.

Lakewood’s Detective Bureau and CSI are investigating the incident.

“Our detectives, along with CSI, are investigating this as an apparent Bias Crime,” Lakewood Police Chief Greg Meyer told TLS. “We will not tolerate such acts in our Town.”

“This incident is beyond horrifying & should be condemned by all,” said the ADL.

  1. To “Maybe”
    One פשט is as you suggest that it’s a סימן that we should ״Chazer” more.
    “דבר אחר” a different פשט is that it’s a reminder that we’re in גלות

  2. That is so uncalled for!I don’t know why some people have to be so cruel and biased.I don’t care what a person’s religion or skin color or nationality is. Everyone needs to remember that we’re all created the same way. We’re all God’s creatures. We all share this Earth. Try to respect one another. It’s not that hard to do.

  3. Not only Is this bias crime: Was the little pig slaughtered humanely? Why is there no blood around it? Did a vehicle pull up in the middle of the night in front of the Rabbi’s home? Or could one masked guy have schlepped the heavy dead little pig a distance?
    This wasn’t a $2 can of spray paint ; this was quite a job.

  4. lol if the motive was anti Semitic, wouldn’t graffiti or something have been easier? Seriously, someone dragged a pig all the way to the Rabbi’s house? Joke is on the guy who wasted time on this

  5. Just food for thought as much as people on here bash liberals and democrats i bet it was a republican or some other right winger who did this!!! Column A !!!

  6. @James Bond, I’ve experienced some serious anti-Semitic behavior locally in Ocean County from a die hard Democrat. Don’t politicize this act of hatred.

  7. Gevaldiga Peshat: That the pig was placed at the door of the Rabbi on Pashes Veyetzai to remind the rabbi that he should explain in depth who Lavan harasha was and the hardship he created for Jacob.
