Memorial Vineyard for Asher and Yehonatan Palmer

Tuesday will mark the anniversary on the Hebrew calendar of the murder of Asher and Yehonatan Palmer, who were killed when Arabs smashed the windshield of a car Asher was driving, causing him to lose control and flip the car on a road between the Judean Jewish community of Kiryat Arba' and Gush Etzion. In addition to the main memorial event, which will include the screening of a movie about the victims, a vineyard in their memory will be dedicated.

The memorial vineyard is the initiative of the brother of Pua Palmer, Asher's widow and Yehonatan's mother. It was planted on authorized land from vines uprooted when a previous site was deemed illegal. The first harvest of grapes for wine has taken place. Interviewed on Arutz Sheva's Hebrew journal, Pua said that after the memorial observance on Tuesday, she plans to initiate a project to build a playground in Yehonatan's memory in Efrat, where she lives with her seven-month-old daughter Orit.
