The bittersweet event was held at the residence of the Gur Rebbe in Jerusalem.

Pashwazmanon, 21 and a father of a baby, was killed by a rocket as he ran for shelter.

He was one of four victims to be killed during a 60-hour onslaught by Gazan terror groups on southern Israel. Moshe Agadi, 58 and a father of four, Ziad al-Hamamda, 47 and a father of seven, Moshe Feder, 68, were also killed in the attacks.

Rivka Jamil, 89 from Ashkelon, who fell while running for cover when the city was attacked with rockets, succumbed to her wounds two months later.
