Adiel Kolman, 32, a father of four, was killed in a terror attack on Sunday evening as he left his job at the City of David museum in the Old City, where he worked as a security guard, and headed in the direction of Jerusalem’s light rail.

It was a route he took every day to return to his home in the Kokhav HaShahar settlement, just outside of the capital.

Kolman grew up in Moshav Keshet in the Golan Heights. He leaves behind children in third and second grade as well as in kindergarten and day care. His wife, Ayelet, is a social worker.

The City of David said he had been with them for years and had worked on their excavations.

“Adiel was a dedicated and loyal worker, a beloved staff member and a model family man,” the museum said.

Kolman will be buried at 11 a.m. on Monday in the Kokhav HaShahar cemetery.
