Name for Tehillim?

On Monday, I read about the horrific crime of arson and attempted murder of Chaim Aron Rottenberg of New Square. It is now Wednesday and I have yet to see a (full) name for Tehillim. First, anyone know the name? And secondly, I find it deeply, deeply troubling that after days later, Jewish news blogs that regularly call for tehillim, have not done so and aren't even reporting the story. Third, I think it is a mistake for Jewish Orthodox media (with the exception of VIN) to ignore this like they have ignored other stories. I really have no time to write today, so I will leave it at that.

Hope someone knows the name for a Mishaberach and Tehillim, not that ben Sarah won't due. This victim should be added to tehillim and mishaberach lists worldwide.

Not sure if this is the best site for information, but it was one of the first results that popped up when I googled the victim's name.

Excellent post. I had the same reaction. A burn is a horrific injury.

The blog that JS linked to in his comment contains details about this attack that are downright horrifying.

I hope the full weight of the federal government comes down hard on anyone who is complicit in this act.

Why haven't the Jewish people been redeemed yet?Maybe because of outrages like this.

So far, we don't yet have real evidence linking the accused's actions to instructions by other people. Why not let the legal system do its job a bit, before speculating?
