Jewish Agency To Probe MASA Screening After Eilat Shooting By New Yorker

10/05/2012

The Jewish Agency is opening an inquiry into its Oranim program after an American participant gunned down a hotel employee in Eilat.

The Jerusalem Post identified the shooter as William Hershkoviz, 23, of Poughkeepsie, NY. The victim was Armando Abed, a 33-year-old sous-chef from Mi'ilya in the Western Galilee.

Hershkovitz reportedly was fired from his job at the Leonardo Club Hotel after arriving there in late August on a program arranged by the Jewish Agency's MASA program.
