When 10 month old Shalhevet was murdered by a “Palestinian” Arab sniper in 2001 in Hebron, a memorial was built for the Jewish baby. Because Israel chooses life.

The Story of Jewish Baby Shalhevet

Shalhevet was only 10 months old when a “Palestinian” sniper murdered her in cold blood in Hebron 17 years ago. Her father was walking with her in the stroller to the park when she was shot and killed. Shalhevet’s father was also injured in the attack. Why were they targeted? Because they are Jewish. Anyone who is willing to commit such a heinous act has no care for life at all. It’s sickening. Shalhevet was only 10 months old. Just a baby.

The Memorial

A memorial was built in the spot in Hebron that Shalhevet was shot and killed. It is a popular location for tourists to visit to learn about the atrocity that took place. It is important for the world to know Shalhevet’s story. Because sadly, her tragedy is far from the only one.

The mainstream news will only tell you when Israel kills terrorists, and the headlines call it “murder.” Is it really an act of murder to defend yourself against terrorists?

But when Jews are murdered in cold blood, the world is silent.

Israelis Choose Life

Why was a memorial built? Because the Jewish people fight back with the best weapon possible: Life. Israelis build instead of destroy. They choose to continue on instead of despairing. It is a quality that is unique to the nation of Israel. The Jewish people have been oppressed, attacked, and murdered for thousands of years, and they have never given up hope. They believe that a day will come soon when all the sadness will end, and the peace will come.

And that hope and prayer allows Jews to continue on and never give up.
