Rabbi Kalman Levine was one of four rabbis killed Tuesday in the Jerusalem synagogue slayings. He was remembered on Tuesday by childhood friend, Rabbi Shimon Kraft.

"It's an honor to have him in our family" Kraft said. "He was so well respected in the community there and loved by everybody. It's a tremendous loss."

The 55-year-old Kansas City native passionately pursued a religious life of after high school when he first visited Israel.

Levine spent two years enrolled in USC's pre-dental program in the 1970's, but continued on a path of spiritual transformation before permanently moving to Israel to devote his life to religion 30 years ago.
