The Jerusalem District Police have arrested Ali Adkidak, 41, from eastern Jerusalem, on suspicion that he was the assailant. Adkidak had a prior criminal record and was recently released from prison, according to local media reports. He denies any involvement in the case.

Kadosh, 74, sustained a head injury during the mugging, which occurred while he stopped to put air in his tires at a Jerusalem gas station—mere hours before his daughter’s wedding.

He was rushed to Hadassah Medical Center-Ein Kerem in the capital, where doctors continue to fight for his life.

Kadosh is one of the most internationally well-known Israeli chefs, cooking for many world leaders. In January 2020, he prepared the food for the World Holocaust Forum gala in Israel attended by 41 heads of state.
