Five months after being run down and killed in a terror attack near Kiryat Arba, the family of Avraham Hosno HY”D celebrated a simcha, the birth of a grandson. The child was born to Avraham’s daughter Tzadika Ben-David, 25, who lives with her husband and two children in Netivot. It is reported she did tell her father of her pregnancy a number of weeks before he was murdered and his reply was, “When will you have a boy so I can be sandek?” She replied “Don’t worry, when a boy will come the slot is guaranteed for you”.
On Sunday, 26 Adar-I, she gave birth to a son. “The labor was over in 40 minutes and I felt abba was with me” Ben-David told the press. “It was very emotional for me…”
Ruti, Tzadika’s mother and widow of R’ Avraham tells of the emotional rollercoaster attached to the birth, a new grandchild, a boy no less, but B”H he will continue in the path of his grandfather”.
The family adds the timing, Adar, is also significant since Avraham was upbeat and always positive and this too is appropriate.
