08-Aug-17: For our friends in and near Jerusalem

Malki and Michal HY"D became the closest of friends
as little girls and neighbors and are buried side-by-side
in Jerusalem
The annual Aliyah La-Kever (going up to the gravesides) and Azkara (memorial service) in memory of the lives of our daughter Malka Chana Roth and her friend Michal Raziel, may their memories be a blessing, will take place at the Har Tamir cemetery in Jerusalem on Thursday evening, August 10, 2017 (Yud-Het Av, according to the Hebrew calendar, since the actual anniversary falls on Shabbat this year) at 5:30 pm.

The girls, aged 15 and 16, were the closest of friends and neighbours in life. Buried side by side, they were victims of a Hamas attack on a Jerusalem pizzeria 16 years ago that sought, and succeeded, according to the engineer of the massacre, to murder as many Jewish children as possible.

As in previous years, free bus transport will be available to and from the ceremony, leaving the Ramot Alef neighborhood in Jerusalem half an hour before the ceremony, returning afterwards to the same place. For driving and bus directions and for details, please email us and we will be happy to give details.

Donations in memory of the murdered girls will be greatly appreciated. We especially recommend the Malki Foundation as a worthy target of your charitable support.
