This morning, Thursday, 4 Menachem Av, his wife Glitu gave birth to a fourth child in Soroka Medical Center, a girl. Glitu arrived on Wednesday night and gave birth a few hours later. Baruch Hashem she and her daughter are healthy.

“I was sad that Danny was not at my side. He was so waiting for the birth of a daughter. It is hard for me, not easy indeed. The delivery was easy but he is missing. Each day is another that he does not return. His voice is not heard in the home. He knew we were having a girl and he was extremely excited. It is very hard. I have no one to call and no one to send out notices. It makes it even more painful that he is no longer here” stated Glitu.
