It is with a very heavy heart and a huge sense of grief that the South African Zionist Federation shares in prayers with Shira and Amichai Ish-Ran, as they laid to rest their prematurely born baby boy, Amiad Yisrael, yesterday. Whilst standing at a bus stop, last Sunday in Ofra, Israel, 7 Israeli victims were viciously attacked by a terrorist, resulting in the critical wounding of Shira and her unborn child. 

No one should have to experience the devastating loss of any child, even more so through intentional violence by an extremist. 

As the Ish-Ran’s rebuild their lives through pain, we wish a Refuah Shlema to Shira in hospital. We pray for strength for the family, may they know no more heartache and sadness.
