The month before his passing, Ari Fuld posted this now chilling video and message ahead of the new year: “While taking a couple on my ‘Jerusalem Through Judea 3000 year experience, we stopped by the Kotel and figured this would be the appropriate thing to do during Elul. ״תקע בשופר גדול לחירותינו…we are ready and waiting”

Ari Fuld, 45 year old husband and father of 4, was the victim of a terror attack in Israel one year ago today. He was stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist at the entrance of a local mall and later died from his injuries. ‘Ari’ is the Hebrew word for lion which is exactly who he was to his core, down to his final moments. Immediately after his fatal stabbing, Ari jumped up and chased after his attacker in ways that almost defied science and logic. Ari was someone who lived and breathed for the land of Israel, he both protected & served the country as an IDF soldier along with his strong advocacy of keeping us safe and informed. One year later and his legacy lives on through his family, friends and community that he has left behind. May his memory be a blessing
