Father of 6 Killed in Terror Attack

Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a 35-year-old father and mohel, was murdered Tuesday in a shooting attack near Havat Gilad in Samaria.


Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a 35-year-old father of six, has died of his wounds following a shooting attack near Havat Gilad in Samaria this evening.

Rabbi Shevach was a mohel and volunteered with Magen David Adom. About a year ago, he finished studies for the rabbinate, and was currently in the midst of studies to be a rabbinical arbiter.

The rabbi leaves behind a wife, 4 daughters and 2 sons, the younger of which is an 8-month-old baby.

Medics who rushed to the scene provided aid to the rabbi and evacuated him to Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba, where doctors fought to save his life, but were ultimately forced to confirm his death.

The hospital said that "The wounded man arrived to the hospital without pulse, not breathing, and without vital signs. He was brought to the trauma room, where advanced resuscitation efforts were employed. Unfortunately, despite the efforts, his death was confirmed."

Initial reports indicated that terrorists shot from a passing vehicle and escaped the scene.

Security forces are combing the area.

Samaria Council head Yossi Dagan responded to the tragic incident, saying, "It's inconceivable that terrorists feel free to shoot at innocent civilians. Nevertheless, I want to send a clear message to our enemies: We will not give in to terror. We have chosen the path of life."

Oy Vey! What other language can we speak??
Hashem, we daaven 3 times a day, we say the Tehillim
for the day +, we do the rest of Chitas -Chumash and Tanya and we've added Rambam. We have constant Shiurum and give endless amounts of money to Tzedaka.. we unite in times of sorrow and in times of joy, we keep all the Yomim Tovim
Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Succos. Shmini Arzere, Simchas Torah, Chanuka, Purim, Pesach and Shavuos We also SHARE
all this Torah and Mitzvos with other Yidden who as of yet didn't know how to express their Yiddishkeit.
If that's not enough.. we fast

Hashem should avenge his blood! and take care of his family!

painful beyond words.
still more permanently scarred yesomim and yet another almanah. Hahem, shma koleinu!!!
on a human level,those arabs who claim they are against this should actively help the Israelis locate and capture the murderer(s). furthermore, for every such act there should be a counteraction that really hurts the murderers and their community. they should lose their access to israeli services such gas, electric, health care etc.let their own "government" supply them with the stuff. if they think Jews have no right to be in that part of the world, let them figure out how to supply their own basic necessities in that part of the world. i don't give it 10-15 years before it starts looking like the land Mark Twain described when he visited there in 1867.
