Orphaned Girl Celebrates Bas Mitzvah


Four-and-a-half years ago, Israelis were shocked to hear of the death of almost an entire family when a car suffered a break failure while descending a steep hill in the Galil. Racheli Attias, the sole survivor of the crash in which her parents and six brothers perished, celebrated her bas mitzvah in Tzefas at a celebration where no one could hold back tears.

“It was an emotional and uplifting occasion with a special atmosphere,” her uncle, Yishai Attias said.

“Even though the tragedy happened four-and-a-half years ago, everything resurfaced when the whole family gathered in the hall,” he said. “Racheli has been very strong since the tragedy. I am sure that the family looked down happily from above.”
