Moriah’s Miracle: Mother of Merkaz HaRav Terror Victim Wins Fight for Daughter’s Life (Chanukah Semifinalist #1)

Moriah’s Miracle: Mother of Merkaz HaRav Terror Victim Wins Fight for Daughter’s Life (Chanukah Semifinalist #1)

Welcome to the “JewishMOM.com $100 ‘I’m a Hero Too’ Chanukah Contest!

Our first semifinalist is modern heroine JewishMOM Ayala Cohen– the mother of Neriya Cohen HY”D who was murdered during the Merkaz Harav Yeshiva terror attack as well as Moriah, a 5-year-old girl who suffered a brain injury and almost died four years ago.

Like thousands of people throughout Israel and the world, four years ago I was also praying for the survival and recovery of Moriah bat Ayala, so it meant so much to me to get to know this courageous girl through this video made about her. I found this moving video (which was, unbelievably, made by a group of high-school girls, including Nachlaot’s-own Ashreena Chen Leibowitz!) so powerful that I spent about 10 hours adding an English translation so you JewishMoms could also bask in the light of this heroic mother and daughter and family. Yep, I think it’s that good! May this holy family be blessed from now on with ONLY HAPPY OCCASIONS…Please note: in the end, the winner of the JewishMOM.com “I’m a Hero Too” contest will be chosen by random selection on the last day of Chanukah– not by public vote.
