A touching video depicts the tragically deceased IDF soldier laughing and having a good time at a yeshiva Purim party earlier this year.
A Nichum Aveilim visit was conducted by members of the Hanhalla of the Chomesh Yeshiva to the family of David Yitzhak Yehuda HY”D, an IDF soldier who died last week while defending Klal Yisrael in Jenin.
According to an article in Arutz Sheva, the Hanhalla family was shown a video of their son dancing at the yeshiva’s Purim celebration this year while he was stationed nearby.
According to the Israeli news outlet, Rabbi Menachem Ben-Shachar explained to David’s parents how he davened, studied, and interacted with pupils at the yeshiva. “I informed the parents of David, whom we had the honor of meeting last winter.
The Egoz unit sent soldiers to Homesh for two months. For nighttime prayers, studies, and conversation with the students, David frequently visited the study hall.
Everyone at the yeshiva recalls him and the dancing because he danced with us for hours on Purim night.
“The videos of the dancing, in which David the soldier is seen dancing with the students, were very moving to the parents,” he said. They claimed it was challenging for him to remain in the army during Purim, a holiday he much enjoyed.
After Purim, he informed his parents that Chomesh Yeshiva was good where he was studying.
Beit El native and sergeant-major David Yehuda Yitzchak, 23, was killed in action on Tuesday night while participating in the closing stages of the “Bayit V’Gan” operation in Jenin.
David, an Egoz commando squad member, is survived by his parents and six siblings. David Yitzchak’s friend Y paid tribute to him, saying, “He brought me up and taught me.
He was a terrific soldier, a hero in Israel, and he had an amazing disposition. He taught me that no matter what, we must remain a team. No matter what, he believed, we are all brothers.
His generosity was exceptional; whatever he did was done wholeheartedly and insincerously.
