In Memory the Fogel Family

Ruth Fogel (35), Udi Fogel (36), Hadas (3 months), Yoav (11), Elad (4
 It has been one year since the vicious murders of Udi & Ruth Fogel and three of their precious chlidren. This family is so much a part of the heart and soul of Israel and the desire to be part of the redemption. They had settled in the Gush Katif city of Netzarim. After being ripped from their home there by the Israeli government, they eventually came to help establish Itamar where Udi was a teacher at a post-high school yeshiva.
Today, in Itamar, a Beit Midrash (house of study) was dedicated in memory of Udi Fogel. MK Uri Ariel put into words the thoughts of many:

“We respond to destruction with construction, we respond to murder with life,” he added “That’s the real message to the murderers and their supporters: you will not drive us out of here with your violence. Each murder only strengthens us further.”

For the Fogel family, dedicating their lives to Torah and to the Land cost them everything. A challenge to us all.
