A heavy sadness has fallen on the community of Shadmot Mahola following last night’s (Monday) attack in Beit Horon that left 23-year-old Shlomit Krigman dead.
Krigman, who grew up in Shadmot Mahola but lived with her grandparents in Beit Horon, was taken to Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital with stab wounds to her upper body. Doctors were unable to save her life.
Her close friend Einat Dermer says that Krigman “was a considerate person who cared about her friends. She always wanted everything to be better. I am in complete shock.
“It hasn’t sunk in. When they called me I was certain that it was to tell me she was engaged. She had such a good heart and was so empathetic to those around her. She was very creative. I still can’t imagine returning home without Shlomit,” she added in tears.
Others in the community said, “We are supporting and embracing the Krigman family. With all the pain and the sadness in losing Shomit hy”d, it is important that the enemy knows we are only getting stronger and more determined to keep our legitimate communities throughout the country, including in the Jordan Valley.
Shadmot Mahola has called on the government to fight Arab terror. “The responsibility for the security of the country’s citizens is on the government and, as law-abiding citizens, it is our expectation. The recent security situation in the country is not reasonable and we cannot accept it. We all hope that the Israeli government will come around.”
Krigman’s funeral will take place at 1:00 pm at Jerusalem’s Har Hamenuhot Cemetery.
