A Fund has been started to memorialize the victims of the Merkaz HaRav Massacre. The idea is to publish a “book, which will be entitled ‘United’, [which] will include words of wisdom from some of the most prominent rabbis in the world on the subject of Unity. It will also include a memorial dedicated to each of the holy victims. The books will be distributed widely as a memorial for the victims and used as a fundraising tool in their memory. Through this publishing, we hope the memory of these 8 holy boys will be preserved. We also hope every one who will learn from this book will add to the merit of those holy ones who were murdered.”

Details are here.

Boker Tov, Boulder! provides these excerpts from the hesped delivered by Rabbi Yerachmiel Weiss, head of the Merkaz High School:

“G-d is just, and His ways are just… We have questions; but the questions are so difficult, so difficult… How is it possible to eulogize one Torah scholar on Rosh Chodesh Adar? But two? and three, and four, and five…?? Your ways are so hidden, Master of the Universe! … In Adar, we increase joy – look how much joy You gathered to Heaven! They were in the midst of studying Torah, such joy, such purity… We have been left with such a hole…

I just want to tell You, Master of the Universe, what great people You took:

Yehonadav – he gave [nadav, in Hebrew] so much; what purity and simplicity…

You took Yochai from us – he lives [chai] in G-d, what Torah study he did; even while they were setting up for the Purim party, he came to learn Torah…

You took Segev Pniel of the Avichayil family – what a family, and what valour [chayil] in Torah! …

You took Yehonatan [meaning “G-d gave”] – what prayer, what Torah, what beauty…

You took our dear Avraham David – just two days ago I had a long talk with him in his room – what knowledge he had, what integrity, what music he gave us with his Torah reading…

and the youngest, Neriah – the candle of G-d, his light will be missing from us…”
