Evyatar "Napo" Borovsky, who was attacked from behind and stabbed to death by an Arab terrorist, was a popular actor. He was a member of the Ar El Group, which performs in Judea, Samaria, 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.

The Ar El group also engages in playback theater and experimental improvisation.

Borovsky starred in a children's production titled, "How Many Times Have I Told You That..." which espoused a humorous view of parenthood, as well as the popular Israeli Latma political satire program.

His funeral tonight in Kfar Hassidim is expected to attract a large crowd of actors, musicians, friends and family. Borovsky was a father of 5 young children.

The murder suspect has been apprehended and is hospitalized. He was revealed to have been released after incarceration for previous terror related activity.
