Together forever

Today, August 1, 2018, is the 20th day of Av in the Hebrew Calendar.

It's the date that marks the 17th Yahrtzeit (anniversary of the date of death) of Malki Chana Roth z"l, who was tragically murdered at the age of 15 together with her friend Michal Raziel z"l, when they stopped to have pizza at the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem. 

As they waited at the counter, a terrorist entered the pizzeria and blew himself up, murdering 15 people, many of them children, and injuring 130 others.

Malki is remembered as a sweet, bright, conscientious daughter, sister and friend who helped her parents with her much-loved special-needs sister, other families of children with disabilities, classmates, and pretty much everyone she saw who needed something.

The Malki Foundation was founded to perpetuate her memory and empowers families of children with disabilities who care for their children at home.

Please honor Malki and Michal's memories by doing a good deed, and help spread their essence in the world.

יהיה זכרן ברוך - may their memories be for a blessing.
