Yahrzheit Today for Dr. Applebaum and Daughter Nava

A Palestinian Authority suicide bomber ten years ago Monday night, on the Hebrew calendar, exploded his charge and killed seven people, including American Israelis Dr. David Applebaum and his daughter Nava the evening before her wedding date.

Slightly less than two years ago, Palestinian Authority terrorist Ibrahim Muhammad Yunus Dar Musa, who helped plan the gruesome murders, was among more than 1,000 terrorists and security prisoners whose prison sentences were cut short in order to enable the safe return of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit.

Dar Musa was sentenced to only 17 years in jail for organizing the suicide bombing. Dr. Applebaum, a native of Detroit and an ordained rabbi, headed a hospital emergency room and had developed new methods for treating suicide bombing victims.

He was walking into Jerusalem’s Hillel restaurant with his 20-year-old daughter, born in Cleveland, when the suicide bomber detonated his explosives.

Several hours earlier, Nava immersed herself in a mikveh ritual bath, as is required prior to a wedding, which in this case never took place.

The security guard at the restaurant, warned by intelligence officials of a possible terrorist attack, spotted the suicide bomber but did not want to shoot him in the back, fearing that the bullet would set off the bomb.

    And was this sub human, released in a prisoner exchange?

  2. Doris Jaffe says:

    David's parents belonged to our Shul in Dayton, Ohio and his Dad was Principal of Hillel Academy of Dayton when my boys were students there. David attended yeshiva in Chicago at that time. We knew his in-law's Rabbi Shubert and Iris Spero in Cleveland. Learning and teaching Torah, and practicing medicine was Dr. David's calling. He gave the world so much of himself. He traveled around the world teaching doctors how to set up and maintain trauma units. May the holy neshamas of Dr, David and daughter Nava each have Aliyot in Gan Eden and each be meilitz yosher for their family, friends, and Klal Yisroel.
