Young Jewish Leader from UK, Murdered in DC

BBC Reports, A political campaigner from north London, 27 year old Alan Senitt, was stabbed to death protecting his female companion as they walked home in Washington, DC. Senitt was working on the presidential campaign of former virginia governor Mark Warner and was previously the head of the Union of Jewish Students and the UJS representative to the Board of Deputies of British Jews. Following the stabbing in what was obstensibly a robbery attempt and alleged sexual assault, four people were arrested and two of them – an underage male and adult female – were charged with murder.
Leaders of London’s Jewish community were saddened by the news and mourn the loss of a young and dynamic personality.
Senit had spent a year working closely with Lord Greville Janner who told the UK Times:

“It’s awful, a horrendous shock. This man was bright, young and had just got a fascinating job. “He was both a Jewish communal leader and before long I believe he would have been a political leader. He was a great leader and this is a tragedy, an absolute tragedy, and everybody I know is just choked.”
