He won't be there to walk her down the aisle

A reminder that I am in Boston where the Sabbath does not start for several more hours and therefor I am able to still be online.

Just before the Sabbath started in Israel, Kiryat Arba (a Jewish suburb of Hebron) resident Yaakov Litman and his 18-year old son Netanel were murdered by 'Palestinian' terrorists.

It seems that Yaakov and Netanel were on their way to their future son-in-law and brother-in-law's aufruf (the calling to the Torah that takes place the Sabbath before the wedding) in Meitar, which is just outside Be'er Sheva. Yaakov's daughter, Netanel's sister is scheduled to be married on Tuesday night (Hat Tip: Leah P via Yeshiva World News).

In case you're wondering, under Jewish law, I believe that the wedding is postponed until after the shiva (one week) mourning period (the rule is different if the bride does not know of her father's death before the wedding).


None of us should know from such sorrow any more.
