Early Tuesday morning, September 26th, just outside the quiet community of Har Adar, in the hills outside Jerusalem, the quiet was broken by a terror attack that left three Israeli security persons dead as well as the terrorist. The victims (picture below) were Border Police officer Solomon Gavriya, 20, of Be’er Ya’acov, who recently returned to duty after being wounded in a previous attack in Jerusalem, and security guards Youssef Othman, 24, of Abu Gosh, and Or Arish, 25, of Har Adar. These three were buried in cemeteries in this hometowns Tuesday afternoon. As you pray during the upcoming Shabbat and Yom Kippur, please remember these three young men and the families they left behind.
May their lives and sacrifice be honored and remembered.
