A horrifying tragedy occurred in Beis Shemesh on Sunday evening when an Arab truck driver ran over Reb Avraham Chaim Anshin, z’l, a 33-year-old Breslover chassid and father of eight.

According to multiple witnesses, the truck driver deliberately ran over Reb Anshin, z’l, after an argument developed between them. Reb Anshin, z’l, was apparently on his way to Mincha when he saw the truck driver, who worked at a nearby construction site, dump debris in the area. He criticized him and the two began arguing. At a certain point, the truck driver lost his temper and ran over Reb Anshin, z’l, and then fled the scene while almost running over someone else. Many people threw objects at him and he was forced to stop. After police arrived on the scene, they arrested him.

Hazalah volunteers, who were the first to arrive at the scene,  said: “When we arrived at the scene, we found a man lying on the street unconscious and in critical condition. According to passersby, a truck driver injured the man amid an argument and then fled the scene. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the victim’s severe injuries, the MDA paramedics were forced to declare his death at the scene.”

The police stated after the accident: “Israel Police began investigating the circumstances of an accident that happened a short time ago on Rav Meir Baal Hanes Street in Beit Shemesh, involving a truck driver and a pedestrian. As a result of the accident, the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene. Police forces and traffic accident examiners of the Israel Police are at the scene, and the truck driver was detained at the scene for investigation.”

Reb Anshin, z’l, was born in Jerusalem and is the descendant of HaRav Shimon Simcha Anshin, z’tl, an influential Breslover Rav, from his father’s side and HaGaon HaTzaddik Yitzchak Tzingel, z’tl, who was also an influential Breslover mashpiah, from his mother’s side.

Reb Anshin, z’l, used to work as a firefighter but quit the job when owning a smartphone became mandatory. He then began working as a bus driver for Talmudei Torah in Beit Shemesh, and was much beloved by the children and their parents alike. “He was always kind to everyone, he never hurt anyone, he always wanted to help others. He would always stop to give people rides and he would do it b’simcha,” friends and acquaintances told B’Chadrei Chareidim.

“We’re all in shock,” a friend said. “Whenever there were big projects in Breslov, he would always help quietly and without asking for anything in return.”

The niftar was also a talented musician and would play at simchos in Beit Shemesh and at Breslover events. He left behind a wife and eight children.

The levaya began on Sunday night at 10 p.m. in Beit Shemesh and continued in Jerusalem, where the niftar was buried at Har Hameunchos.

  1. The only thing to do is keep them off our roads. And Israel wiil never do that because they are too concerned with what the goyim will say. So the Arabs literally get away with murder.

  2. DavidtheKanoi and agutyar, there isn’t a “Jewish city” and an “our road” that can make do without their labor input. If you wish to ban them, please propose an alternative source of labor that isn’t being used today, especially in Bet Shemesh.

  3. Had we listened to Rav Meir Kahane h”y”d, this Tzadik and thousands of other murdered Jews would be alive today.
    Someone bringing into his house poisonous killer snakes, and let’s them roam around freely, and wakes up one morning and his family is gone. Whom would you blame, the snake or the criminally insane murderer who let poisonous snakes roam around freely ?.
    Of course we know the answer.
    Israel has over 2,000,000 murderous poisonous snakes roaming around freely, and doing what snakes do.
    There is only one solution and it’s Meir Kahane’s one ” THEY ALL MUST GO”

  4. THE TOIRAH SAYS WHN YOU ENTER THE LAND KICK THEM OUT BURN THEIR IDOLS.
    That ment so as not to contaminate the rest of holy nation with both physical and mental idols (ANGER HATE BLOODSHED …)
    But we got was Moshe Dayan and Ben Gourion and Sharon who dejudeuzised the land and give the bloodthirsty “Temple Mount”, Chevron and Gaza border and they were helped by EU and US money leaving Jews with Barberians in their back yard while the men and women pretending to be frum bribe Arabs with funds to build and develop infostructures and know the state secrets while pledging alignment with Hamas and PA.
    So who is here is to balme? The bloodthirsty Arabs or the rulling Jews who crave for power to no evil ends?
