Ori Ansbacher HY”D, the 19 year-old Israeli teenager from Takua who was savagely murdered in a forest in Jerusalem in Thursday night has just been laid to rest. She was doing her national service in Jerusalem and was from the Gush Etzion community of Tekoa. Her father is a rabbi at the Yeshiva there.

The murder was so brutal that the courts have placed a gag order on the details of her murder.  The police together with the Shin bet are  investigating if it was a criminal act or terrorism and are still searching for suspects. Four Arab suspects had been detained for questioning, but were released after questioning.

Her body was found in Ein Yael, Which lies between the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo and the Arab village of Walaja

May her family be comforted among the morning of Tzion and Jerusalem
