Rabbi Leo Dee eulogizes his two daughters Maia and Rina who were killed in a terror attack on Friday at their funeral in Kfar Etzion on Sunday.
Dee recalls his daughters’ dedication to their studies, their commitment to the country, and the hopes and dreams they had for the future.
He also prays for his wife who was critically injured in the terror attack, and thanks friends, neighbors and well-wishers for their help in the days following the incident.
“My beautiful perfect Maia, we named you ‘God’s water’ and you were so many people’s friend, flowing between so many different groups… You were always an angel, now you will always be our guardian angel,” says Dee tearfully.
Addressing Rina, he describes her as a dedicated student and friend, and a responsible person who others relied upon and trusted.
“My darling Rina, you would tidy the youth club for hours by yourself. People loved you and knew they could depend on you,” he recalls.
“You dreamed of traveling the world, now you’re traveling to Heaven,” says Dee. “Maia and Rina you are two flames who have not gone out. You will bring more light to the world. You have inspired and loved us, in return we will love you forever.”
