Remembering the Har Nof victims

Written by Movement for Reform Judaism Wednesday, 19 November 2014

Five people were murdered on Tuesday in Har Nof, Jerusalem: Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg, Rabbi Aryeh Kupinsky, Rabbi Moshe Twersky, and Rabbi Kalman Levine. A policeman, Zidan Saif, was murdered trying to protect them. The dreadful images of people slain in the act of worship have been awful to see.
