Reactions from friends and family to the death of Evyatar Borovsky, who was murdered by a Palestinian Arab in the West Bank Tuesday, have begun to trickle in.

He was a member of the Ar El acting group, which performs in the West Bank, Jerusalem and throughout Israel. “Napo,” as he was known by his colleagues and friends, participated in therapeutic psychodrama, which incorporates role-playing and improvisation in an effort to enable others to overcome traumatic experiences, Israel National News reported.

Borovsky’s mother told Israeli media in an interview that her son had just moved to the area where he ultimately met his death.

“He was very happy when he moved there,” she said. “He bought a home in Yitzhar only a few months ago. We were afraid to go there. Every time something happened, we called to find out.”

    ‘My son was killed just for being Jewish’

    Thousands attend funeral of Yitzhar resident Evyatar Borovsky, who was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist at Tapuach Junction – Settlers demand government take action, say “writing was on the wall in blood” – Fatah’s Facebook page glorifies terrorist.

    He was stabbed multiple times in the chest.

    “Evyatar was a righteous, God-fearing man, who loved life. He loved making people laugh and he was extremely funny. He studied to be a medical clown and saw it as his vocation, to make patients smile and laugh. He didn’t care if they were Jewish or Arab.”
