About two and a half months ago, four Israelis were murdered in an attack at the entrance to the settlement of Eli, among them the boys Nachman Mordof and Harel Masoud. Rabbi Dvir Tal, who had the privilege of knowing and connecting with the two boys, today (Tuesday) releases a song he wrote and composed in their memory.
"It is a great privilege for me to cherish the memory of the late Nachman and Harel and to draw a little of the light of their great souls into our lives," says Rabbi Tal "The amazing Masoud family lives in our settlement in Yad Binyamin, and the Mordof family left the settlement only a year ago - and we were privileged to be their close friends for many years. The late Nachman even shared with me several times his special way of life, in short as he used to, with a light that goes far beyond words."
Rabbi Tal recounts that the day after he went to comfort the mourners, he went to a quiet corner in the settlement and was alone with himself: "I felt so much the immense pain of their passing and at the same time I was very enlightened by their figures, and suddenly this melody was played for me and immediately after it the words began.
"I realized that it is precisely from this crazy pain that you can really grow," he says. "When you meet someone with light in their eyes and a soul full of love, it touches you and affects you."
