unitedwithisrael.org: Jacob Kimchy’s Journey From Terror Victim to Motivational Speaker
Contending with his own deep loss, the son of a terror victim finds new meaning in life by helping others deal with their grief.
Nearly 13 years ago, a Ukrainian woman and her Palestinian husband drove a suicide bomber to Rishon Lezion, a city in central Israel. The suicide bomber entered a game club on the night of May 7, 2002, located on the third floor of a building, and detonated a suitcase full of explosives, complete with shrapnel and nails. Patrons at the club had been playing card games, slot machines and snooker as the explosion went off, causing part of the building to collapse.
