JNS.org – Some 10,000 Israelis attended on Sunday the joint funeral of Yosef, Chaya and Elad Salomon, who were stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist on Friday night in Halamish.

Yosef Salomon’s wife, Tova, who was wounded in the terror attack and was still recovering from her wounds, did not attend the funeral. During Sunday’s ceremony, hundreds of mourners formed a human chain from the Salomon family’s Halamish home to the cemetery in Modi’in, with Israeli flags lining the highway.

“Only a person with no glimmer of humanity could have acted against Yossi (Yosef Salomon) and his family,”  said Rabbi Yonatan Glass, the Halamish community’s rabbi. “Yossi made everyone he was around happy. He was a generous donor, both to community causes and to poor families.”

The terror attack in Halamish came on the heels of a Palestinian-incited “day of rage,” in which riots erupted after Friday prayers in response to the installation of metal detectors at the entrance gates to the Temple Mount. Israel bolstered security following the July 14 Arab terror attack that killed two Israeli Druze policemen near the holy site.
