June 1, 2001 - Ori Shahar, 32, of Ramat Gan, was one of 21 people killed in a suicide bombing at a Tel-Aviv discotheque shortly before midnight on Friday night.

Ori Shahar, who lived alone and worked as the "house father" at the Geulim community center in Ramat Gan, was out walking near the Dolphinarium when bomb exploded, and was returning to his car. Ramat Gan municipality spokesman Memi Pe'er said Ori was a warm and gracious man, who helped the children at the community center.

Ori is survived by his parents, a sister and two brothers, one of whom lives in the United States.

Ori Shahar was buried in Kiryat Shaul.
