This morning, the ‘Hagomel’ blessing ceremony was held at the Western Wall Plaza, recited by young survivors rescued by the heroes Rami Davidian and his son-in-law Oren Laufer from the horrific massacre on the seventh of October, Simchat Torah, at the Nova music festival.

The amazing story of Rami began when, on the morning of the 7th of October, he received a call from a friend asking him to rescue one of the youngsters who participated in the party held in the area. With determination, Rami went to the party area, only to witness the dimensions of the disaster. Amidst missile attacks and heavy gunfire from terrorists, Oren, his son-in-law, joined him, and together they gathered young men and women hiding on the sides of the roads and within the party area, rescuing dozens to a protected area far from the massacre sites. Real heroes indeed.
The survivors were greeted by the rabbi of the Western Wall and holy sites, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, along with the director of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, Mordechai (Suli) Eli
