Watch: Son of Israeli Terror Victim Lights Hanukkah Menorah in Berlin

Dalia Elyakim was the Israeli woman killed in the recent terrorist truck attack on a Berlin Christmas market. The Jerusalem Post shares this inspiring video of her son, Or Elyakim, taking part in a menorah-lighting ceremony in Germany:

Jewish, Muslim and Christian representatives attended a traditional lighting ceremony for Hanukkah in Berlin on Tuesday night which this year was dedicated to the victims of last week’s truck attack which killed 12 people and injured 48 others.

Or Elyakim, son of Dalia Elyakim who was killed on December 19 when a truck deliberately ploughed through a Berlin Christmas market, lit the fourth candle on the 10-metre high menorah, Europe’s largest, the organizers said.

The Tunisian assailant, 24-year-old Anis Amri, was shot dead by Italian police in shootout last Friday after a European-wide manhunt.
