‘Shlomit Krigman was loved by all’

Hundreds of people have gathered together for the funeral of Shlomit Krigman, who was killed in yesterday's terror attack near Beit Horon.  

Krigman is being buried in Har Hamenuchot cemetery in Jerusalem next to Dafna Meir, a fellow terror victim who was murdered in Otniel while protecting her children. Krigman was 23 years old and resided in Shadmot Mehola in the Jordan Valley. She left behind her six siblings and her parents Na'ama and Yitzchak.  

Israel's Chief Rabbi David Leon eulogized Shlomit and said, "She set aside time to help others, she ran to do it, both in her job as a youth leader for the B'nei Akiva youth movement and by helping the current generation connect with books. She created a pleasant and accessible library. What a difference there is between a peaceful book and two terrorists running at you trying to stab people, and plant bombs along the way. This is a something that cannot be understood."

A spokesperson for Shadmot Mehola, Aviad Yizraeli, told Arutz Sheva that "the entire town took the news really hard. Shlomit served in national service for two years and then began her studies in Ariel University in the field of industrial design. She looked to havea  glowing career ahead of her. She was loved by everyone here.   

Krigman was the eldest sibling in her family who are veterans in the town. Her father Yitzchak works in the cow-shed, and her mother Na'ama works as the secretary for the local religious council.  "Shlomit was a terrific and sweet girl, and so talented. She was a go-getter and a very social person" Yizraeli added."

The funeral was attended by other dignitaries including Deputy Minister of Defense Eli Ben Dahan (Jewish Home), MK Shuli Mualem (Jewish Home), MK Motti Yogev (Jewish Home) and the Chief officer of Central Command of the IDF Roni Numa.
