The final hours of Chaya Zissel Braun, the 3 month old girl brutally murdered by Hamas, were spent at the Western Wall with her parents. This was her first and last visit to Israel’s holiest site.

The last picture of Chaya Zissel Braun, the baby girl murdered when an Arab terrorist mowed down innocent people at a Jerusalem rail station, was taken at Judaism’s holiest site – the Western Wall. The infant’s parents were praying at the Kotel (Western Wall) just hours before her life was tragically cut short as the family made their way home.

The baby’s grandfather, Shimon Halperin, recounted how the couple had been childless for many years and were overjoyed when they finally gave birth to a daughter.

“Her parents waited for a child for many years during which they did not merit to have children,” he told reporters, recounting how he used to enjoy playing with her. “Today they were coming back from praying at the Kotel and a terrorist came and ran over their baby.”

“The parents are in trauma and are trying to digest the news.”

At the funeral, father Shmuel Elimelech led a tearful eulogy of his infant daughter. “You were pure. I want you to look down at me and smile. Tomorrow is your three-month birthday. It’s all now in God’s hands. We will remember you,” he cried.

The attack was praised by Hamas, as well as by at least one senior Palestinian Authority figure, who praised the killer – Abdelrahman Shaludi – as a “heroic martyr.”
