Eitam and Na’ama Henkin were laid to rest Friday morning at Jerusalem’s Har HaMenuchot in an emotional ceremony attended by thousands after being killed Thursday night in a shooting attack on their vehicle in the West Bank.

The couple’s four children were in the vehicle during the attack, but escaped unharmed. The oldest, 9-year-old Matan, took to the stage to say Kaddish for his parents as he struggled to contain his tears.

  • A beautiful prayer

    I asked God to take away my habit.
    God said, No.
    It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
    I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
    God said, No.
    His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.
    I asked God to grant me patience.
    God said, No.
    Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;
    It isn’t granted, it is learned.
    I asked God to give me happiness.
    God said, No.
    I give you blessings; happiness is up to you.
    I asked God to spare me pain.
    God said, No.
    Suffering draws you apart from worldly care;
    and brings you closer to me.
    I asked God to make my spirit grow.
    God said, No.
    You must grow on your own!,
    but I will prune you to make you fruitful.
    I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
    God said, No.
    I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.
    I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as he loves me.
    God said,
    Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
