Princes Among Men: Memories of Eight Young Souls
On Rosh Chodesh Adar II, 5758 – March 6, 2008 – a terrorist infiltrated the Yeshivat Mercaz HaRav -Yeshivat Yerushalayim L’Tzeirim (Yashlatz high school) shared campus and killed eight young students of the two yeshivot while injuring dozens more. Throughout Israel and the larger Jewish world people were shocked and horrified. Reaching out to each other over the void of our loss, their friends and classmates discovered that remembering those precious souls by telling and retelling stories of their scholarship and fine midos was a great comfort. They discovered that each of the young men lost in the attack, though still in the bud of first youth, was already a proven tzaddik.
This precious book contains a collection of impressions, recollections and divrei Torah written by family members, friends and teachers of the eight boys.
May this book serve as a memorial to these eight young men who lived a life of faith. Faithful to Hashem, His Torah and His people. They died as they lived, clinging to Hashem’s word as they ascended to the heavenly yeshivah. May their memories be a blessing.
