Our nation stands tall in the face of tragedy.
“Eliezer Rosenfeld, father of 26-year-old Malachi Rosenfeld who was fatally wounded in a terror attack Monday evening, delivered a heart-rending farewell to his son at his funeral Wednesday.
In an emotional eulogy, Eliezer described an outgoing and thoughtful young man, “always joking,” who had “really come into his own” in the years before his tragic death.
“I raised an ambitious boy, wise, with such great intelligence. He went out to play basketball, a competition between communities, and didn’t come back. It’s shameful, what is happening in our country.”
During the eulogy, the grieving father – supported by two of his remaining seven children – sang a song of faith”.

VeAfilu BeHastara Lyrics
[Some versions – :כָּתוּב בַּתּוֹרָה הַקְדוֹשָׁה]
דֶער אֵויבִערשְׁטָער זָאגְט אוּנז קִינְדָערְלַעךְ: אָנוֹכִי הַסְתֵּר אַסְתִּר פָּנַי בַּיוֹם הַהוּא
וְאַפִילוּ בְּהַסְתָּרָה שֶׁבְּתוֹךְ הַסְתָּרָה בְּוַודַאי גַם שָׁם נִמְצָא הַשֵם יִתְבָּרַךְ. גַם מֵאַחוֹרֵי הַדְבָרִים הַקָשִׁים הָעוֹבְרִים עָלֶיךָ, אַנִי עוֹמֵד
“[**Some versions – It is written in the Holy Torah:] Hashem says to His children: ‘I will conceal Myself (from the Jewish people) on that day.’ (Devarim 31:18)
Rav Nachman however explains: Even during a concealment within a concealment, Hashem, may He be blessed, is certainly there. Also behind all the difficult things that come before you, I stand.” (Likutei Mo”HaRan – Specific Torah to be added soon)
