Police Chief Roni Alshich confirmed that a police honor citation will be given to Rav Nechemiah Lavi, 41, the maggid shiur killed last October when he rushed from his Old City home to try and save Aharon and Edel Banitto from a terror attack.
“It was a very moving call,” Lavi’s wife, Neta, said when Alshich phoned her with the news. “We are moved to be told of this before a year passed. Nechemiah did something superhuman; he went out to help others knowing he might be hurt. It is good to see that the country has not forgotten and that the Israeli police appreciate it.”
