The Ohr Torah Stone family is shocked and saddened by the tragic loss of Sergeant Elhai Teharlev in this morning’s car-ramming attack in Ofra. 

Elhai, 20, served in the Golani infantry brigade, as part of the Tekoa Hesder Yeshiva. He was known for the warm and contagious smile which never left his face.

Our hearts go out to Elhai’s father, Rabbi Ohad Teharlev, Director of Midreshet Lindenbaum, to his mother Avital, and to his three brothers and three sisters.

May Elhai’s memory be a blessing. יהי זכרו ברוך ונצור בליבינו תמיד
