A man has stabbed a rabbi to death in a Beersheva yeshiva.
The 70-year-old victim, Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira, was understood to have been giving the man guidance when the attack took place. Rabbi Abuhatzeira was a well-regarded scholar of kabbalah.
The man was named by the Israeli media as Asher Dahan and was said to be a fairly regular visitor to the yeshiva.
