One of Jerusalem attack victims named as rabbinical judge Elimelech Wasserman

One of the three people murdered in this morning’s shooting terror attack in Jerusalem is named by spokespersons for both chief rabbis as Ashdod rabbinical judge Elimelech Wasserman, 73.

The offices of Rabbis Yitzhak Yosef and David Lau both mourn Wasserman as a senior, gifted and dedicated dayan, saying he was “murdered by a vile person.”

After his retirement, Wasserman was appointed a dayan amit, a retired rabbinical judge who continues serving after retirement if there are empty seats on the bench.
