Sunday was a big day for children across the country and their parents, since it was the first day of school – but it was a wonderful day for the parents of 20-year-old Noam Nevies, who wheeled their daughter out of Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem for the last time.
Noam was discharged Sunday from the hospital after spending more than two weeks in treatment after being hit by a car in a ramming attack by a Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist while walking to a bus stop outside the Jewish community of Elazar in Gush Etzion. The terrorist was shot and killed by an Israel Police officer who was passing by.
Noam will continue her rehabilitation treatment on an outpatient basis at Hadassah’s Mt. Scopus Medical Center campus in Jerusalem.
Upon leaving, she thanked the staff, doctors and nurses who accompanied her through her medical care process, and asked everyone to continue to pray for her 17-year-old brother Nahum’s complete recovery; he is still in the neurosurgery intensive care unit.
Noam told Arutz Sheva that she cannot remember everything that happened, and that she and her brother were walking and were hit by the car “from behind” before reaching the bus stop. She hopes to return to dancing upon her recovery.
The public is also being asked to please pray for Nahum’s recovery. His name for prayers is: Nahum Elimelech Refael ben Zahava Rivka.
