    Jerusalem – “Shaye, go upstairs to the throne and say to the Almighty, this is enough!”

    This was the cry heard by thousands of people who converged on the Bais Yisrael neighborhood in Jerusalem to pay final tribute to a prominent and beloved rabbi, Yeshayahu Akiva Krishevsky, 59, whose was brutally run down today by a Palestinian terrorist while waiting at a bus stop. Rabbi Krishevsly will be laid to rest today in Har Ha’Menuchos Cemetery.

    According to eyewitness accounts, after driving his car into the waiting crowd at the bus stop, the terrorist from East Jerusalem then exited his vehicle and proceeded to further attack the wounded, including Rabbi Krishevsky, with an ax. A security guard is being credited with critically shooting the terrorist and saving many lives.

    “He was God-fearing, careful about both the simple and difficult mitzvot, and was connected heart and soul to the Grand Rabbi from Pinsk-Karlin,” his friend said about him this morning, as they received the bitter news of this cruel attack.

    Born in Jerusalem, Rabbi Krishevsky belonged to the Pinsk-Karlin chassidic sect. His father was Ha’Gaon Ha’Rav Reuven Krishevksy who was the rabbi of the Etz Chaim neighborhood. He was a known Talmud chacham in the yeshiva of Kochav M’Yaakov. Rabbi Yeshayahu Krishevsky was the author of a noted sefer on Torah, Jewish holidays, and Pirkei Avos entitled P’ninei Yeshayahu.

    Those who knew Rabbi Krishevsky said he never made a bracha or even recited the Asher Yatzar prayer without ensuring there were people around him to answer amen. He was also very careful to never speak during davening.
