It was an emotional simcha on Monday afternoon 21 Teves in Central Beis Medrash in Givat Mordechai, Yerushalayim. It was the bris of the Gross family, Shimon and Michal.
Emotions were especially potent as the bris was held on the one-year anniversary of the tragedy, the pesticide tragedy that ultimately claimed the lives of the couple’s daughters, Yael (4) and Avigail (8) A”H.
The sandek was HaGaon HaRav Azriel Auerbach. Among the guests were Rosh Yeshivas Mir HaGaon Rav Eliezer Yehuda Finkel, HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Ezrachi Shlita and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat.
The infant was named Yonasan Eliezer, after a grandfather.
