Terrorist tried to commit suicide attack with 35 kilograms of explosives
When Shimon Levi was a baby, he survived a terrorist attack against all odds. A suicide bomber had set off 35 explosives right next to him and his parents.
Hours later, a Zaka volunteer found him crying on the ground with a piece of shrapnel pierced into his leg after he flew three meters into the air. The fact that he survived was nothing short of a miracle.
Grateful to be alive yet severely injured, Shimon’s parents were left handicapped after the terrorist attack. Ever since, finances have been tight. Now that Levi is engaged, he is feeling the everlasting influence of the terrorist attack on his life more than ever.
“Because of our situation, my parents don’t know how they will pay for the wedding”, he writes on a crowdfunding page.
“This terrorist tried to kill our family. He tried to erase our existence. Please don’t let him! Please, help me build a new Jewish home.”
Funds are being collected here to help Shimon cover basic wedding expenses: A venue, food for Sheva Brachot, etc. Click here to join the hundreds that are helping Shimon get married and to rebuild the legacy that the Arabs tried so hard to destroy.
With the help of strangers across the world, his family name will live on for generations to come.
