Good News During Rabbis' Visit

Just as Chabad rabbis visited Niv Nehamia, the supermarket employee stabbed by an Arab terrorist, doctors had good news.

It was an ordinary day, and Niv Nehamia was just going about his daily routine at his job at the Supersol supermarket in Yavne.

Closed-circuit footage from the supermarket would later show a Palestinian walking past him as he arranged goods on a shelf.

As the 42-year-old Israeli husband and father leaned over the products, the Palestinian turned around, came back, pulled a knife from under his shirt, and repeatedly stabbed him in the back.

Civilian bystanders jumped the attacker and wrestled him to the ground and held him until the Israeli Security Service arrived.

The victim was rushed to the Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot where he fought for his life throughout the night. He underwent a six-hour surgery, which was immediately followed by a second surgery.

Rabbi Menachem Kutner, Director of Chabad's Terror Victims Project, together with the Chabad Shliach at the hospital, Rabbi Idan Makanik, and Rabbi Meir Cohen, Shliach from Kiryat Ekron, rushed to the hospital to be with the family and offer assistance.

They sat with the distraught family, comforting them, and together with the family, and others who wished to join, recited Tehillim for the full recovery of Niv Gil ben Hadassah.

Thank G-d, they received good news.

"During our visit," Rabbi Kutner said, "the team of surgeons came out with positive news about a significant improvement in Niv’s condition, and they expressed optimism."

To make things easier for the family during this difficult time, Chabad has arranged for the children to go to a local Chabad summer camp during the day. Chabad has also arranged apartments for the family so they can spend Shabbat near the hospital.

"We are also providing for all of the family’s immediate needs - and will continue to do so for as long as necessary," Rabbi Kutner said.
