Thousands Mourn Rabbis Slain in Jerusalem Attack

Funerals were held before sundown for the four Rabbis killed Tuesday morning by two Palestinians at a Jerusalem synagogue.

Vehicles carry the bodies of Calman Levine, Aryeh Kopinsky and Avraham Shmuel Goldberg during their funeral near the scene of an attack at a Jerusalem synagogue, on Nov. 18, 2014. Two Palestinians armed with a meat cleaver and a gun killed four worshippers, including Kopinsky, Levine and Goldberg at the synagogue on Tuesday before being shot dead by police, the deadliest such incident in six years in the holy city amid a surge in religious conflict.
