US Ambassador Prays at Har Nof Shul

The United States' Ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro, prayed at the Jerusalem synagogue targeted in a deadly terrorist attack last week, in a symbolic show of solidarity.

Shapiro joined congregants for shacharit prayers at the Kehillat Bnei Torah synagogue in Har Nof, where four congregants and a police officer were murdered by terrorists wielding meat-cleavers and a gun, accompanied by the president of the United Hatzalah ambulance service, Eli Beer, and CEO of the Israelife Foundation Eli Faulk.

Faulk, who is a volunteer paramedic for United Hatzalah, was among the first at the scene of the attack last Tuesday.

Shapiro attended the entire prayer, wrapped in his tallit prayer shawl and tefillin

Shapiro took time to meet with individual congregants, many of whom - like three of the five people killed in the attack - are American citizens. Some of them told how they were present at scene of the attack as it unfolded, and witnessed their fellow congregants slaughtered before their eyes. Congregants also showed the Ambassador the bullet holes which still remain in the walls.
