Shira Ish Ran’s Parents: Our Daughter’s Chanukah Miracle

First, an update regarding the couple injured in last night’s terror attack: The baby, delivered by emergency C-section last night, is in critical condition and his life is in immediate danger. Please pray for the “Rach HaNolad ben Shira Yael” (רך הנולד בן שירה יעל). Shira Ish-Ran (Shira Yael bat Liora Sara) remains in the ICU in serious but now, b”H, stable condition. And the husband, Amichai Ish-Ran (Amichai Yishai ben Galila) is in good condition and is recovering from bullet wounds to his leg.

In an interview this morning with Niv Raskin for the morning news, Shira Ish Ran’s parents, Liora and Chaim Silberstein, spoke about the difficult night they endured following the terror attack. Translation below:

Shira’s father, Chaim Silberstein: “Our daughter, Shira, is hospitalized in the ICU and her condition is stable. But many prayers are still needed. The baby’s also not in such great condition and needs many prayers [CJW: the baby is in critical condition and his life is in immediate danger. Please pray for “Rach HaNolad ben Shira Yael”]. We just want to express our gratitude to the medical staff of Shaarei Tsedek who have given medical care that is above and beyond to our daughter, as well as to our son-in-law, Amichai, who was hit by 3 bullets in his leg, and was lightly injured.

“We heard about the terror attack from our son-in-law, who called me. I was in a meeting last night. And he called and told me, as he was being driven in the ambulance, that they had been injured. Of course, in a panic, we got ready and drove to the hospital.”

Shira’s mother, Liora Silberstein: “I just want to agree with what my husband said, that the staff here, the nurses, the social workers, the doctors are above and beyond. And we are very, very grateful to them and to everyone who is praying now.

“We ask for everyone to pray for our daughter, Shira Yael bat Liora Sara, and for her baby who is especially in need of prayer: רך הנולד בן שירה יעל (Rach HaNolad ben Shira Yael). We thank them and the entire Jewish people for praying for their well-being. Please continue praying. And for our son-in-law, Amichai Yishai ben Galila. Thank you for your prayers.”

Chaim Silberstein: “Our daughter was hit by a bullet in her lower abdomen, and apparently, miraculously, the bullet exited without causing irreparable damage through her pelvis, without breaking it, and her life was saved by the medical staff.

“She lost a tremendous amount of blood, and received 12 blood transfusions. And her life was, quite simply, saved here by the medical staff. We are continuing to pray that her condition will continue to stabilize and improve. And, of course, we will be remaining at the hospital, and we are continuing to hope and pray.

Liora Silberstain: “We truly want to thank Hashem for all the miracles, so many miracles that took place. So many bullets fired at a large group of people crowded together [CJW: They were attending a memorial service for victims of a traffic accident] and we, 3 bullets in my son-in-law’s leg…We just have to keep on praying for the baby…”

Chaim Silberstein: “Shira is 21 years old, she has a twin brother and both of them got married just a month apart, 9 months ago. Shira and her husband live in Elon Moreh, her husband studies in the hesder yeshiva there, he served in the IDF in Golani, and Shira is studying towards her BA at Michlelet Orot.

“Simply a wonderful couple. And we are grateful that their lives were saved in a Chanukah miracle.”
