Natalie Mizrahi, Selfless Hospital Worker, Wife, and Daughter, Among Victims in Jerusalem Terror Attack

Right after Shabbat, during Havdalah, our phone rang. My daughter, who had been away for Shabbat, sounded upset, “Hi Eema, is everyone OK?”

“Yes, we’re all fine…why, did something happen?” and that was how I heard the terrible news about the 2 terror attacks in Jerusalem this Shabbat, in the City of David and outside a synagogue in Neve Yaakov. Leaving 7 dead, including a 14-year-old Asher Natan, and more severely injured.
Whenever tragedy strikes, I am struck by how it ends up shining a spotlight on the incredible human beings who make up the State of Israel and Am Yisrael. Among the heroes murdered in this terror attack were Eli and Natalie Mizrahi. Here is what Ynet reported about them:

“Eli and Natalie Mizrahi got married two years ago, and were murdered last night in the terror attack in Neve Ya’akov.
“Eli’s father, Shimon, said that his son and his wife went out to help the wounded in the attack – and were murdered by the terrorist. “The terrorist was standing next to his car and shot them. My son was a humble, religious man. He wanted to help. He saw that there were shots and when the shooting stopped he and his wife wanted to help the wounded.”
Natalie worked for 20 years in the food department at Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital distributing meals to the patients. A coworker remembers, “She was always smiling, always ready to lend a helping hand, she loved her work feeding the patients.”
Ella Sakovich, Natalie’s aunt, explained last night “Natalie immigrated to Israel with her parents and her sister in the 90s, and from then until today she took care lovingly of both “her” patients and her parents, around the clock.”
The CEO of Hadassah, Prof. Yoram Weiss said: “The Hadassah employees all bow their heads at this difficult time. Natalie was a long-time and well-known employee at the hospital. Everyone who worked with her speaks of a warm woman full of caring and a desire to do as much good as she could for the patients she met every day, so her co-workers were not surprised when they heard that she rushed to help the injured last night.”
May her memory and the the memories of all the murdered be a blessing. And may these be the last victims on terror.
