Rabbi Yehuda Glick, 49, of the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation was shot at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center on Wednesday night, October 29. He had been speaking at the Temple Mount and Eretz Yisrael Faithful Movement held at the center annually.

A Jerusalem District spokesman said the gunman was on a motorcycle.

According to a MADA paramedic who arrived on scene, Aaron Adler, Rabbi Glick was still conscious. “We found a man suffering from a number of gunshot wounds in the upper part of his body. We provided him with immediate medical treatment and admitted him for emergency treatment at the hospital with the victim in critical condition.”

Rabbi Glick is the director of Haliba, which advocates for Jewish civil rights on the Temple Mount. The organization’s mission statement reads that its goal is to “bring together a diverse group of Jewish Israeli – secular, haredi, traditional, national religious, men and women – who are united in their concern of the inability of Jews to freely ascent the Mount to pray…”

Israeli Knesset Minister Naftali Bennett responded to the terror attack, commenting that, “an attack in the heart of Jerusalem against a public figure crosses a red line of blood.”
