Hershkovitz arrived in Israel about two months ago as part of a work and study program sponsored by the Israeli government and the Jewish Agency. Earlier in the week he was fired by the Leonardo Club and was due to be re-assigned to another job by the program.
Program co-participants had complained in the past about his violent tendencies and threats to other participants.
One person, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Hershkovitz made statements “against Arabs, or Nazis, or terrorist type movements.”
