Rabbi Murdered in Jerusalem Terrorist Attack

Thousands of mourners escorted the body of Rabbi Yeshayahu Krishevsky to his final resting place on Har Hamenuchot. The rabbi, a Stolin-Karlin Chasid, was murdered in a terror attack today when a terrorist rammed his car into people at a bus stop on Malchei yisrael St. in Jerusalem, then got out of his car and proceeded to stab his victims.

A civilian security guard in the area saw the attack and confronted the terrorist, shooting him several times. The terrorist continued to try and resume his attack until he was finally subdued by border police. The entire attack was recorded on video, which can be viewed here.

Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat attended the funeral. He has called on the government to lock down the Arab neighborhoods of East Jerusalem where most of the terrorists have originated from.

Rabbi Krishevsky had just finished his morning prayers at a nearby synagogue and was waiting for a bus on his way to meet his regular study partner when the attack occurred.

May his memory be a blessing.
