Magen David Adom paramedics found Kaufman lying on the sidewalk with multiple stab wounds to his upper body.

The paramedics transported Kaufman to the Shaare Tzedek Medical Center in Jerusalem while receiving life saving treatments.

Shaare Zedek listed Kaufman as being in very serious condition with chest stab wounds when he arrived at the hospital. Kaufman died of his wounds several weeks later at the hospital.

Kaufman, a resident of Kiryat Arba, was married to Veronica with whom he had two children, 19-year-old David, a soldier in the navy and Michal, 9. He worked as a security guard and gardener in Kiryat Arba.
