One of the four rabbis killed during a terror attack inside a Jerusalem synagogue Tuesday came from a prominent family of Boston Jewish scholars with deep connections to the Boston area, according to Israeli news accounts.

Rabbi Mosheh Twersky was slain inside the synagogue around 7 a.m. Israeli time, allegedly by two Palestinians who charged inside the temple and attacked worshipers with multiple weapons, authorities said. The Palestinians were killed in a shootout with Israeli security forces.
