Aharon Sofer Found Dead near Jerusalem; Video of Fishtown Food Center; Corbett's Healthy PA Approved

Police in Jerusalem, Israel say that the body found near a forest is that of the missing student from New Jersey. 23-year-old Aharon Sofer from Lakewood, NJ, had been missing since Friday when he went on a hike with a friend in the woods. The two became separated and Aharon wasn't seen again. The body was found about a mile from where he was last seen. Officials believe he may have slipped and fell on the difficult terrain, however a cause of death is not official. Sofer was studying at an ultra-Orthodox yeshiva or Jewish religious school. The Ocean County man was one of 10 children. His parents, Chulda and Moshe, flew to Israel a few days ago to help in the search. They identified the body today.

Philadelphia Police have released surveillance video of an armed robbery at a food distribution center overnight that netted $87,700. It happened around 2:00 a.m. Wednesday at the Kawa Trading Corporation along the 1700 block of Delaware Avenue in Fishtown. Two suspects with “POLICE” written on their hats and a badge around one of their necks identified themselves as officers to employees to gain access to the building. Once inside they directed the employees at gunpoint. The two suspects attempted to destroy the surveillance system but everything inside and outside of the building was recorded. The two males are described to be in their 20's. They fled in a dark colored, '90s SUV. Anyone with information is asked to call Philadelphia Police at 215.686.TIPS You can view the video on The Post at

Federal regulators have approved Governor Tom Corbett’s Medicaid overhaul or the “Healthy PA” plan, which will offer federally subsidized but private health insurance plans to a half-million low income Pennsylvanians. The “Healthy PA Private Coverage Option” will be available on December 1st with coverage beginning January 1st. This is not a Medicaid 'expansion' as in other states, although it is using those federal expansion funds to subsidize low-income citizens in purchasing private insurance. The plan also covers the same group of people as the expansion: working adults who make up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level, or about $15,500 a year. Corbett backed down on including a 'work search requirement' as part of Medicaid enrollment. Many states have not accepted the Medicaid expansion dollars after the Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that states could opt out. PA becomes one of the first to reform their Medicaid system in such a way after holding out on expansion.

Clear and comfortable, temperatures in the 70's this evening in Center City
