Rabbi Yigal Shendorfi, head of the Nachliel yeshiva, was attacked by Arab men on Tuesday night in the Old City in Jerusalem. The attack took place on the road leading to Shaar Shechem, a short distance from the Western Wall (Kotel).

The rabbi was accompanied by several of his students, who came to his aid. He later filed a report with police.

The rabbi and his students were leaving the Old City after taking part in the traditional march around the Old City walls held on Rosh Chodesh, the first day of the new Hebrew month.
