Thousands attended and are expected to attend the funerals of the four victims killed by terrorists in the Har Nof synagogue in Jerusalem Tuesday morning.
The terror attack took place between 7:01 and 7:08 before the terrorists were shot and killed by police forces.
The murdered were all rabbis as well as close friends and neighbors who all lived on the same street. They leave behind 24 children and four widows. Three of the four were dual American citizens and one a British-Israeli citizen.
The victims of the terror attack were:
Rabbi Moshe Twersky, 59, a dual American-Israeli citizen, father to five children and ten grandchildren. He immigrated to Israel in 1990. He was laid to rest on Tuesday afternoon.
Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg, 69, a dual British-Israeli citizen and father to six children. He immigrated to Israel in 1991.
Rabbi Kalman Levine, 50, a dual American-Israeli citizen, father to nine children and grandfather to five.
Rabbi Aryeh Kupinksy, 43, an American-Israeli citizen. He lost his 13-year-old daughter 2 years ago.
Their funerals are currently underway.
While Israel mourns, celebrations are being held in the Gaza Strip, with Hamas and Palestinian media praising the terrorists as “martyrs”. Gazans took to the streets, handing out candy and brandished axes in celebration.
