Rabbi Yeshaya Krishevsky, a Pinsk-Karlin Chossid and known Torah scholar, was murdered in a terror attack on Tuesday in Jerusalem.
He was 59.
Rabbi Krishevsky was killed while walking on Malkhei Yisrael Street in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Geula, when a terrorist drove a car into a bus stop, hitting him and one other victim. The terrorist then got out of the vehicle and stabbed both victims repeatedly.
Rabbi Krishevsky was a prominent chosid of Pinsk-Karlin, known for his Torah learning and for his yiras shomayim. He was also close to the Rachmastrivka Rebbe.
Rabbi Krishevsky was the author of the Peninei Yehoshua series, a collection of commentaries on the weekly Torah portion used in many Yeshivos.
He is survived by one son, Zalman Krishevsky, a Lubavitcher who lives in Bnei Brak, Israel.
The funeral took place at Pinsk-Karlin Beth Israel in Jerusalem on Tuesday.
