5th Tevet: Yahrtzeit of Binyamin Ze'ev and Talya Kahane

5 Tevet 5777

Seventeen years! I remember getting the early morning phone call like it was yesterday. Rav Binyamin Ze'ev and his young wife Talya, both shot through the head under a hail of bullets aimed at their car as they were returning home from spending Shabbat in Yerushalayim. By a miracle, the car full of children, including their two-month-old infant, were physically unhurt. They had just dropped off their eldest son at school in Ofrah.

Their memory continues to be a blessing to everyone who knew and loved them. And to know them was to love them.
