Father Sings at Son's Funeral

חייב אדם לברך על הרעה כשם שהוא מברך על הטובה - משנה, סדר זרעים  מסכת ברכות פרק ט, משנה ה

Eliezer Rosenfeld, father of 26-year-old Malachi Rosenfeld who was fatally wounded in a terror attack Monday evening, delivered a heart-rending farewell to his son at his funeral Wednesday.

During the eulogy, the grieving father - supported by two of his remaining seven children - sang a song of faith.

"Even in the most concealed​​ of concealed​​ moments"' sang the bereaved father "certainly​ G-d, blessed be He, is also found there."

Amid sobs from other mourners, he urged his tearful audience to sing with him as he reached the words: "Even behind the most difficult things that happen to you, He (still) stands, He stands - and we will stand, we will stand with G-d."

Malachi Rosenfeld, 26, from Kochav Hashahar, was one of four men shot at close range by gunmen in a passing car near Shvut Rahel, some 45 km. north of Jerusalem, shortly after 11 on Monday night. More than a dozen bullets were fired into the vehicle, killing Rosenfeld and wounding three of his friends.

The family is no stranger to loss.

Thirteen years ago, on March 29, 2002, Malachi's eldest brother, Lt. Yitzchak-Menachem Rosenfeld, 22, was killed in a jeep accident in the Tze'elim Stream, in the Judean Desert. He was a pilot in the IAF.

Yitzhak-Menachem was named after his uncle, Sergeant Yitzhak-Moshe Rosenfeld, who was also killed during his military service, in 1978.
