‘Fight Islamism all over the world’

The victims of the Merca Harav Yeshiva. Top row: Avraham David Moses (16), Ro’i Roth (18), Neria Cohen (15), Yonatan Yitzhak Eldar (16); Bottom row: Yochai Lifshitz (18), Segev Peniel Avihail (15), Yehonadav Haim Hirschfeld (19), Doron Meherete (26).


Israel supporters worldwide must organize massive rallies and public prayer vigils in memory of those killed in the Thursday attack on a yeshiva in Jerusalem, Jewish Agency Chairman Ze’ev Bielski wrote in a letter to Jewish leaders this week.


“We must unite and bring word of this attack to all corners of the world, to expand the circle of support and identification with Israel’s ongoing struggle against terror,” Bielski wrote in the letter.


‘The entire country is in need of mercy’

The head of the yeshiva, Rabbi Yaakov Shapira was the first to speak:

“We are all in need of mercy, the entire country,” Shapira cried.

“Pray for all of us and give good counsel to the families, to the anguished friends.”

Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar was weeping as well. “We have paid with our best boys, who were sitting by their talmuds … torah was their entire world, they are the roses that have been picked … and God will have mercy on us for their merit.

Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski also addressed the crowd:

“Lord, nations have invaded your land, desecrated your holy hall, eight of our sweet loved ones, may God avenge their blood, who only yesterday were living amongst us, are no longer with us. Their lives were severed by lowly murderers … but the murderer did not wish to target them alone, but rather each and every one of us, each and every resident of the holy city of Jerusalem.

For many years our enemies have been trying to ruin our lives, to harm us as much as they can. Jerusalem has paid heavily in blood, and the long long list was joined last night by our eight sons.”
