Teen wounded in Jerusalem terror attack succumbs to wounds
Shalom Aharon Badani, 17-year-old yeshiva student from Jerusalem
Nov 7, 2014 - Shalom Aharon Badani, 17, of Jerusalem, critically injured in the Jerusalem light rail terror attack on November 5, succumbed to his wounds on Friday, November 7.
A Palestinian terrorist used his car to deliberately drive into a crowd of Israelis at a light rail station on the corner of Bar Lev and Shimon Ha’Zadik streetsin Jerusalem around noon. Driving along the tracks, he hit several cars until crashing to a halt. The terrorist then exited the vehicle and began attacking passersby with a metal pole.
Aharon Badani, a yeshiva student from the ultra-Orthodox Ramat Shlomo neighborhood in Jerusalem, had been on his way to pray at the Western Wall when a Palestinian driver rammed his van into a crowd of people waiting at the light rail station. He succumbed to his wounds two days later.
Bidani was the grandson of Rabbi Shimon Badani, a member of the Shas Council of Torah Sages, the ultra-Orthodox party's governing body. His father, Rabbi David Yeshaya Badani, thanked God for the 17 years they were given their beloved son, and asked for strength for the family to carry on after the great tragedy.
Shalom Aharon Badani was buried in the Givat Shaul cemetery in Jerusalem.
