On Wednesday night, the 19-year-old son of one of our suppliers was murdered in cold blood by terrorists as he returned to his yeshiva in the Gush Etzion region.
Dvir Sorek—son of Rachel Sorek, one of our artisan jewelry makers—had been in Jerusalem the day he was killed. Always kind-hearted and quick to serve others, he had volunteered to buy books for his yeshiva rabbis on behalf of his classmates as an end-of-year gift.
Dvir never got to give his gift or see the smiles on his rabbis' faces. On his way back from Jerusalem, before he reached the yeshiva, he became the latest victim of an evil, senseless terror attack. His body was found by the side of the road in the early hours of Thursday morning.
