Yoav Hattab memorial held in Bnei Brak

As per the request of the Hattab family, a separate service is held outside a Bnei Brak yeshiva for Yoav Hattab, as the body lies in state.

In an address outside the yeshiva, MK Eli Yishai says the four victims died while “working to honor the Shabbat.”

“But then the abhorrent terrorist came along, a terrorist who sought to murder Jews for being Jews, and brutally stole their lives,” he says.

Several hundred people attend the procession, according to the ultra-Orthodox Kikar HaShabat website, and will later continue to Jerusalem for the joint funeral.
