Murdered Yale student’s fiance to stay home from shul


Who knew there would be a Jewish hook to that awful story of the Yale grad student murdered in the days before her wedding? (Not one like the suspected Craigslist Killer.) The family of Jonathan Widawsky, a Columbia student, said yesterday that they would be skipping High Holiday services—and for that matter all services for the “foreseeable future.”

They said they want to “facilitate the safety, security and sensitivity” of services at Temple Beth El.

Widawsky and Annie Le, 24, were to be married the day her body was found stuffed behind a wall in her research lab. Police arrested and charged a lab tech yesterday with her killing; signs are pointing to a strangling.

I don’t think the Unetanah Tokef mentions anything about asphyxiation.
