"Now you shall write this song…" (Devarim, 31, 19)

Writing a Sefer Torah in the memory of Naftali Ben Zion Lanzkron Hy"d

We would like to invite you to participate in the Mitzvah of writing a Sefer Torah in the memory of my dear and beloved brother Naftali Ben Zion Lanzkron Hy"d, who fell on the holiness of the Jewish nation and the land of Israel, on 4th of Nissan (3.28.2001).


Naftali was 13 and three months old when he died. He got up that morning, like every morning, to go to "Bney Chayil" Yeshivah in Kedumim. The bus that Naftali took used to stop at a gas station on the way, where the students would gather, in order to switch to an armored bus that would safely take them to Yeshivah.


On the morning of March 28th 2001, while they were waiting for the bus, a suicide terrorist that carried a bomb approached the group of kids, where Naftali was standing. When the terrorist exploded himself, Naftali and his friend Eliran Rosenberg died on the spot. Naftali was the youngest of 10 children in our family, the son of Meir and Chavah Lanzkron.


Naftali was a child with a charming and beautiful smile, a good friend and loved by all his community.
