Three Israelis, a border police officer and two security guards, were killed earlier this week in a terrorist attack near the entrance to a settlement outside Jerusalem. The attacker has been identified as a 37-year-old Palestinian father of four who had a valid work permit for Israel.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • This most recent terror attack occurred days after U.S. President Donald Trump met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the U.N. General Assembly where Trump expressed his optimism that a peace deal between Palestinians and Israel can be reached.
  • Iran has unveiled its latest in ballistic missile technology with a new medium-range missile that can now reach Israel, as well as other targets in the Middle East.
  • Fellowship Vice President Yael Eckstein delivered the keynote address to the Association of Americans and Canadians, an organization serving Israel’s English-speaking community, at its national memorial ceremony honoring those killed at the hands of terrorists.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Ami Farkas with reflections on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, and the holiest day on the Jewish calendar.
