About 12.30am on Saturday October 26, 2013, a group of four Jewish men and a Jewish woman were walking along Blair Street, Bondi, Australia, on their way home from a Friday night Sabbath eve meal. They were Shlomo Behar, 27, parents Elias, 66, and Lea, 62, and two other men - Shlomo Ben-Haim, 48, and Zeev Aronstam, 39. Shlomo BenHaiem is the education shaliach for the Jewish National Fund.
A group of about eight young men began to follow them, yelling anti-Semitic insults at them such as 'damn Jews,' and then physically assaulting them. There were three rounds: beatings, pause, beatings, pause, beatings. The melee played out along Glenayr Avenue until police arrived. There were no weapons although they did try to smash a bottle over Shlomo Behar‘s head.
