OneFamily organization, the supporters of thousands of families hurt and bereaved in terror attacks, published on the eve of the Jewish New Year (Sunday, Oct. 2) the list of this past year’s victims of the various terror attacks during the Jewish year, 5776.
The organization noted that within the past year there were a total of 165 stabbing attacks, 107 shooting attacks, 47 car ramming attacks and hundreds of stoning attacks on Israeli cars. Due to these attacks, 44 people were killed and 558 more people were wounded.
Marc Belzberg, chairman of the organization said in a statement: “Our message is, please remember those who lost their lives to terror since last Rosh HaShana, and the empty chair at their holiday tables, of a beloved son who is no more, a witty daughter, a father who was the pillar of strength or a mother who used to huddle all of her children together under her wings of love. That empty chair is nothing compared to the punctured hole in the hearts of everyone they left behind.”
