About Rabbi Ma - Jafit

Rabbi Ma-Jafit was the Chief Rabbi of Rowne.

On 7 October 1941 he was telling the congregation that their deaths would not be in vain, when he was shot by an SS man.

In Rowne, on this day, more than 17,000 Jews were driven from their homes, marched to the pits and ordered to undress.

It was the second day of the Harvest of Succoth.
