Second terror victim named as Chabad rabbi who ran soup kitchen

Rabbi Moshe Kravitzky has been named as the second victim in the Beersheba stabbing attack.

Kravitzky, whose age is not given, was a married father of four. He lived in Kiryat Malachi, and ran a soup kitchen in Beersheba for a decade as part of his activities with the city’s Chabad Lubavitch community.

He also ran a Chabad center in Beersheba’s Nahal Beka neighborhood, as the movement’s envoy there.

Kravitzky was killed while riding his bike, when terrorist Mohammed Ghalab al-Qian rammed his car into him. The terrorist also stabbed three others to death, and injured two others.

A Chabad representative describes Kravitzky to Kikar HaShabbat as “someone who was all about charity and selfless care.”

“Together with his family, he invested everything in the community – both materially and spiritually. We are in shock and are pained by this sad news,” Beersheba’s head Chabad envoy Zalman Gorelik tells COLlive.

No funeral details are immediately available.
