Huwara shooting

“I truly love this family, they’re a very special family. I was almost incapacitated for a moment,” Rabbi Bar-Hayim said.

Rabbi David Bar-Hayim, the head of Machon Shilo, recounted the moments after the shooting terror attack in which Itamar resident David Stern was wounded as he drove with his family through the Arab village of Huwara in Samaria.

Rabbi Bar-Hayim said that Rachel, David’s wife, had called him from the scene of the attack and told him that her husband was injured and asked him to pray for him.

“I truly love this family, they’re a very special family. I was almost incapacitated for a moment,” Bar-Hayim said.

“Most people, when they’re shot in the head, don’t do very well afterward. I cannot describe to you all the thoughts that were racing through my mind for the next couple hours.

“David was hit in the right arm by one bullet twice, and the other bullet apparently grazed the back of his skull and he’s fine. The words neis gamur [“absolute miracle”] don’t cover it. It turns out the Almighty loves this family very much. It is truly a miracle.”
