A ‘Kvutzeh’ student has become the victim of a terror campaign perpetrated by his fellow students in a bid to evict him from his dorm room in the infamous and lawless 749 Eastern Parkway dormitory. The terror campaign against him included a series of robberies, a brutal beat down, letters containing threats and rifle ammunition left on his pillow.

Shifren, a Los Angeles native and a resident of 749 Eastern Parkway, but not a student in Tomchei Temimim-770 (Kvutzeh), is alleged to have robbed and assaulted a fellow resident of the dormitory in an effort to intimidate him into vacating his room.
