(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Shlomit Krigman, the 30th victim to be killed during the current wave of Palestinian terror in Israel, was laid to rest Tuesday at Jerusalem’s Har Hamenuchot cemetery beside the grave the Dafna Meir, an Israeli mother of six who was the terror wave’s 29th victim.
Krigman, killed just before turning 24, was critically wounded on Monday in a Palestinian stabbing attack in Beit Horon on her way to visit her grandparents. She was evacuated to Hadassah Medical Center on Mount Scopus, where doctors battled through the night to save her, but succumbed to her wounds early Tuesday morning. Hours later, hundreds of people accompanied her on her last journey.
Krigman was born on Moshav Shadmot Mehola in the Jordan Valley and in recent years had been living with her grandparents, Ilana and Moshe Krigman, in Beit Horon. Krigman completed two years of national service, the second of which she spent in a communal house with other graduates of the Bnei Akiva youth movement. She completed her bachelor’s degree in industrial design at Ariel University of Samaria and was most recently employed at a bookstore in Jerusalem.
“She was very creative and an amazing girl,” her close friend Einat Dermer said. “We grew up together and Shlomit was always happy and full of life. A really beautiful person, both inside and out. She had a lot of love for everything around her, for her family, for her boyfriend, Noam. She had modesty and a constant desire to improve. Everything she did was always came from a desire to add light and goodness. That was what was so beautiful about her.”
