Six year after the horrific 9/11 attacks, the remains of an Ashdod resident, 30-year-old Alona Avraham HY”D were laid to rest in Eretz Yisroel – Ynet reports. Avraham was a passenger on-board United Airlines flight 175, which struck the South Tower of the WTC.
Alona’s mother, Miriam, told Ynet that she was informed about a month and a half ago that the remains of her daughter were identified using DNA samples.
Her remains arrived in Eretz Yisroel today, inside an Aron placed on a stretcher and draped in an American flag. Hundreds of people attended the Levaya.
Although the family had sat Shiva 6 years ago, they were told to sit Shiva today for one hour.
Alona Abraham HY”D – who was a manufacturing engineer associate for Applied Materials, the largest maker of chip manufacturing equipment – had only been 11 days into her first vacation in the United States on 9/11.
