Made-up antisemitic attack: Sean Samit reported he was attacked and stabbed in the abdomen by an unknown man in the parking lot at the Temple Kol Ami, where he worked as a cantorial soloist, which is a music director.
Surveillance footage from across the street showed this was false. Then he claimed he'd cut himself and lost consciousness, but his Apple watch health program showed this to be false too, so he admitted the whole thing was fake.
