Terror-ravaged Jerusalem suffered one of its most painful blows since the outbreak of the ongoing terror wave, with three people killed in two separate attacks on Tuesday in the Israeli capital.
The first victim identified was Rabbi Yeshiyahu Krishevsky, HY”D, a member of the Pinsk-Karlin Hassidic sect, who was murdered in a combined car and stabbing attack in Jerusalem’s Geula neighborhood. He was 59.
A renowned scholar, Rabbi Krishevsky spent years compiling the book “Pearls of Yeshiyahu” on the Torah.
According to the acquaintance, Rabbi Krishevsky had finished prayers in the study hall on Tuesday morning and went to the bus station to meet with his regular learning partner. He was there killed by Arab terrorist, Alaa Abu Jamal.
“Standing next to the deceased at the bus stop was one of the most important Hasids,” the acquaintance said. “He is the second injured person who condition remains defined as serious. May the the peace and quiet return to Jerusalem.”
Rabbi Krishevsky is survived by one son, Zalman Krishevsky, a Lubavitcher who lives in Bnei Brak, and serves as a Mashgiach in Prague, Czech Republic.
His funeral took place close to the Pinsk-Karlin study hall in Jerusalem and continued from there to Har Hamenuchot for his burial.
