In the course of their weekly volunteering at Shaare Zedek Hospital this morning, students in the Darkaynu girls’ program were privileged to meet Hadas Mizrachi, the wife of Baruch Mizrachi z’l, who was murdered on his way to the Pesach Seder in front of his wife and five children. Hadas suffered two bullets to her back, which is why she was at the hospital.
“Hadas gracefully introduced herself, wanting to meet and get to know us. As well as sharing with us the story of Baruch, she also shared her appreciation of the chessed we were doing and, in general, of the fact that we came to spend time learning and volunteering in Eretz Yisrael. It was an amazing opportunity to meet a true Israeli hero.”
