Rabbi Druckman Tells Youth of Surviving Terror Attack


Rabbi Haim Druckman told a group of students on Wednesday about his personal experience surviving a terrorist attack, marking 20 years since the incident. He made the comments during a tour of Bnei Akiva youth institutions.

In 1993, a vehicle in which Rabbi Druckman was traveling was hit by dozens of bullets. The driver, Efraim Ayubi, was ultimately killed, but was able to continue driving the car until reaching safety. Hamas publicly claimed responsibility for the attack. Security officials who investigated the incident later concluded it was an assassination attempt.

Born in Poland, Rabbi Druckman is an Israel Prize laureate, head of the Ohr Etzion Yeshiva, and the head of the Bnei Akiva Youth Movement and Center for Bnei Akiva Yeshivot.
