UK national slain in attack

One of the men killed in the Har Nof attack was a British national.

Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg made aliyah from London’s Golders Green neighborhood in 1993, according to the British Jewish News.

“Avraham prayed there most days for the last ten years or so, he was a devout Jew with no political agenda,” a friend tells the Jewish News. “All he wanted was to live a peaceful life. His family are the nicest people you could meet. They had lots of children and several grandchildren.”

A UK Foreign Office spokesman confirmed to the paper that a British citizen was killed.
