The young widow of Toulouse murder victim Rabbi Jonathan Sandler has issued a heartfelt plea asking Jewish parents to increase light in the world through Torah.
The rabbi and his two young sons, ages 3 and 6, were shot to death along with the 8-year-old daughter of the principal of Otzar HaTorah day school in southern France. The Al-Qaeda-linked terrorist who carried out the attack was killed Thursday after a 30-hour siege by French commandos who finally stormed the nearby apartment building in which they had him pinned him down.
The young widow’s message, issued originally in Hebrew in ‘A Heartfelt Plea for Increased Light by Mrs. Chava (Eva) Sandler of Toulouse’ was published late Thursday on the Chabad.org website.
In her grief, the young widow asked parents to find special love for their children, increase the study of Torah, to light the Sabbath candles before sunset each Friday, and invite guests to the Passover seder.
