Alexander Levlovich, 64, victim of rock attack
Killed while on his way home from a Rosh Hashana dinner
Sept 13, 2015 - Alexander Levlovich, 64, of Jerusalem was killed while on his way home from a Rosh Hashana dinner when he lost control of his vehicle after it was struck by rocks.
Alexander Levlovich, 64, was returning home to the Armon Hanetziv neighborhood in Jerusalem at approximately 11 p.m. after a Rosh Hashana holiday dinner when his car was struck by rocks thrown by Arab youths on Asher Viner Street. He lost control of his vehicle, apparently also suffering a heart attack, and was critically injured when it struck a pole. Two passengers in the car were lightly injured. Alexander was evacuated to hospital and died shortly afterwards.
Levlovich, a divorced father of three, was born in Jerusalem and lived in the city his entire life. He was the manager of a residence for disabled people in Jerusalem's Gilo neighborhood. Shimon Zurieli, Director General of ILAN, the Israeli Foundation for Handicapped Children, said: "He was a man of gold, with hands of gold and a heart of gold" who, with virtually no budget, found ways to make life easier for the residents. He was also an avid van of the Hapoel Jerusalem basketball team.
Just days before he was killed, Alexander celebrated the wedding of his daughter Noi, where he danced with everyone. His son Nir, who was in New York when his father was killed, wrote: "One stone changed the course of my life."
Alexander Levlovich was buried in the Givat Shaul cemetery in Jerusalem. He is survived by his two daughters, Noi and Maya, and son, Nir, as well as his partner Iris.
