Moshe Yedid-Levy


Dec 1, 2001 - Moshe Yedid-Levy, 19, of Jerusalem, was one of 11 young people killed on Saturday night at the Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall in the center of Jerusalem.

At about 11:30 P.M., two suicide bombers detonated explosive devices on Ben Yehuda Street, the pedestrian mall frequented by many young people on Saturday night. A car bomb exploded nearby 20 minutes later. In addition to the 11 people killed, about 180 were injured in the terrorist attack.

Moshe, the eldest son of Ya'akov and Anat, attended the Gilo Comprehensive school and was doing a post-matriculation year in electronics before beginning his army service. He was due to be drafted next May.

He went with friends on Saturday night to the Ben Yehuda mall. His cousin, Avihu Yedid, was injured in the first blast. Moshe, who tried to help his cousin, and his friend Nir Haftzadi were killed by the second bomb.

Moshe Yedid-Levy was buried in the Givat Shaul cemetery in Jerusalem. He is survived by his parents and two younger brothers, Tal (15) and Adam (12).
