On Friday, August 17, 1929, Yisrael Lev, a student at the Slobodka Yeshiva in Hebron
did not feel well and left for Jerusalem to seek medical assistance. That day, one of his fellow students was hacked to death and the following day, many more including dozens of Hebron's Jewish community were similarly slaughtered.
He remained Haredi but an Israeli flag flew on his balcony every Independence Day.
His two daughters served in the IDF. One, Tzippora, married Zev Roich. The new couple had four children.
Tzipora's granddaughter, Naama nee Armoni, was murdered by Arab terrorists during the Succot holiday as was her husband, Rabbi Eitam Henkin.
