Friends and family, together with the bride and groom, Avigdor and Ayelet, made this amazing and entertaining music wedding clip. It had me in tears.
The Jewish people are about moving forward while holding close our loved ones who are no longer with us, and overcoming the evil that is up against us!
Seventeen years after their parents were murdered in various terrorist attacks, Avigdor Gavish and Ayelet Dickstein were married
Both of them lost their parents and some siblings in terror attacks that took place the same year.
Seventeen years after losing their loved ones in terror attacks, Avigdor Gavish and Ayelet Dickstein got married at an exciting wedding and proved that love is stronger than anything. At the beginning of the ceremony, the rabbi called on parents who were not present “to come join us under the chupah”
The Terror Attacks
Terror struck Avigdor’s family in 2002 when he was a 19-year-old soldier. On the night of the seder, a day after the horrific massacre at the Park Hotel in Netanya, a Muslim terrorist infiltrated his parents’ home in the settlement of Elon Moreh in Samaria. The terrorist opened fire, mortally wounding his father David, who later died of his wounds, and murdered his mother Rachel and her father, Yitzhak Kanner.
He then shot Avraham Gavish, Avigdor’s eldest brother, who was then an officer in the elite Sayeret Matkal commando unit . Later, Avraham died of his wounds as well.
Avigdor went up to the second floor to protect his little brothers. The terrorist was later killed by a Sayeret Matkal commando force.
Four months later, terror struck Ayelet’s family. At the end of July 2002, the Dikstein family from Psagot traveled to stay with relatives in the Ma’on community in Mount Hebron. Their car was attacked by terrorists while driving.
In the first burst of fire, nine-year-old Shubal, Ayelet’s brother, and mother Hannah were injured. Her father Joseph went out to help his wife and wounded son but was then also shot himself and killed on the spot. Later, the mother and her little son died of their wounds.
Avigdor and Ayelet met for the first time in a support group for orphans of the “One Family” association. Over the years the bond between them tightened and about two and a half years ago they became a couple. On the day Avigdor proposed to Ayelet, the couple went to the Elon Moreh cemetery and visited the graves of Avigdor’s parents, brother and grandfather. From there they went to the cemetery in Psagot and went to the graves of her parents and Ayelet’s brother. Only then did they then tell their family and friends about their wedding.
