Rabbi Yeshayahu Krishevsky, 60, has been identified as the man who was killed in the vehicular attack in Jerusalem on Tuesday morning.

Krishevsky was killed when a Palestinian terrorist drove his vehicle into a group of several people waiting at a bus stop on Malkei Israel Street in the capital's ultra-Orthodox Geula neighborhood. The terrorist then exited his car with a meat cleaver and began attacking the wounded and others with the implement.

Two other people were seriously wounded in the attack.

The funeral procession of Krishevsky, a hassidic man from the Pinsk-Karlin community, took off from the community's synagogue in the capital at 2:00 p.m.
