HaPeles is the rival of the haredi Lithuanian daily Yated Ne'eman. Grossman was once the latter's editor in chief before moving to HaPeles.
Grossman is considered a very influential figure in the haredi community. The assault prompted the formation of a new political faction – "The Jerusalem Faction" – which now aims to take votes away from United Torah Judaism.
