Deadly stampede in Israel: 5 victims came from New Jersey, New York region
Menachem Knoblowitz, 21, of Borough Park, Brooklyn, was buried just after dark Saturday night in Jerusalem.
Additionally, Israeli media identifies 13-year-old Eliezer Yitzchok Koltai as a former resident of Passaic, New Jersey, currently living in Jerusalem.
Of the 45 people killed at Mount Meron, at least four others were from the tri-state area, including Daniel Morris, 19, of Bergenfield, New Jersey.
At least 10 of the victims were children.
There are growing calls for the establishment of an official commission of inquiry to determine how such a large crowd may have come together, despite repeated warnings in recent years about security breaches.
