Two haredi men who were found shot to death in a car in Tel Aviv’s Montefiore neighborhood on Wednesday night were laid to rest on Thursday.

Eliyahu Averman, 19, of Jerusalem, was buried in the capital. The Kalliver Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Taub, tearfully eulogized the young man, who was close to him.Ohad Rosenberg, a 31- year-old resident of Rishon Lezion who worked as a security guard and had a licensed pistol, is believed to have shot Averman before turning his gun on himself.

He was buried in Rishon Lezion.

Police had initially surmised that the deaths could be the result of a quarrel between gay partners, but later told The Jerusalem Post that all possibilities were being investigated.
