Rabbi Binyamin Herling, 64, of Kedumim, was killed and four other Israelis wounded during intensive gun battles when Fatah activists and Palestinian security forces opened fire on a group of Israeli men, women, and children on a day trip at Mount Ebal near Nablus.
Herling moved to Kedumim with his wife Bracha from Kfar Haroeh in 1981. He headed Kollel Birkat Yosef in Elon Moreh.
Friends noted that Herling maintained strong ties with students of the Od Yosef Hai Yeshiva at Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus. Friends of Herling described him as a modest, soft-spoken, and well-liked man who was never involved in controversy.
Standing over his father’s grave, Herling’s son, Yehoshua, called on settlers to refrain from carrying out acts of vengeance for the death of his father.
