Two days after the terror attack in Burgas, Bulgaria, those who were tragically killed were laid to rest in Israel.
Hundreds of people accompanied Kochava Shriki on her final journey to the Old Cemetery in Rishon Letzion.
Kochava used to attend shiurim at the Chabad House in Rishon Letzion. Her sister and brother-in-law daven at the Chabad shul every Shabbos and their children attend Chabad schools.
“We stand here, unable to believe the magnitude of the disaster that has befallen us. You loved children so much, and now, when you finally found out that you were expecting, the evil terrorist came along. From here, I would like to send this message to every anti-Semite, to Nasrallah – we will still find you. And to the Israelis – keep traveling around the world, and don’t give any rewards to terror,” her brother mourned.
Leading those who accompanied the levayah were Mayor Dov Tzur, leader of the Chabad community in Rishon Letzion Rabbi Mordechai Tzvi Dubrawsky, Chabad House director Rabbi Yitzchok Gruzman, shliach Rabbi Moshe Gruzman, and shliach Rabbi Eli Segal.
Kochava’s sister, Yael Morad, spoke about her with much pain and prayed for the coming of Moshiach and techiyas hameisim.
Another sister, Dorit Cohen, said, “She wasn’t ready to give up on this trip. She wanted to be happy, but she died because she was Jewish. It is such a hard day for us and for the Jewish nation. Bibi must wake up. They are pursuing us around the world. It can’t be that this government will do nothing. We must find the murderers, Nasrallah who boasts on TV, we must find them ….”
