Hundreds of children attended the special third yahrzeit Avos U’banim held in Kehillos Bnei Torah in Har Nof this motzei Shabbos, marking the third yahrzeit since the bloody terrorist attack in that shul during shachris minyan. HaRav HaTzadik Rav Binyomin Finkel Shlita addressed the special event in memory of the kedoshim HY”D.
Murdered in that attack were HaRav Moshe Twersky, Rav Aryeh Kupinsky, Rav Kalman Ze’ev Levine and R’ Avraham Goldberg HY”D.
Rav Yechiel Rothman, 55, was Niftar one year later from his wounds.
The attack was perpetrated by two cousins, Uday Abu Jamal and Ghassan Abu Jamal from Jebl Mukaber in east Jerusalem on November 18, 2014. They entered the Shul shortly after 7 a.m. and attacked the men Davening Shacharis with knives, meat cleavers and a pistol.
Policeman Zidan Saif, 30, died from wounds sustained when he was attacked by the terrorists after he arrived at the scene of the incident.
