'We are Still Happy,' Says Defiant Bereaved Brother


The one-year memorial of the murder of Evyatar Borovsky underlined a theme that accompanies Jewish resettlement of the Land of Israel since day one: “the more you kill us, the more we will settle the land.” Borovsky, a 31-year-old father of five and actor from Yitzhar, in Samaria, was stabbed to death at the Tapuach Junction on April 30 last year. One of three brothers, he was raised in the village of Kfar Hassidim in the Zevulun Valley.

A march in his memory was held Wednesday, Jerusalem Day, starting from Tapuach Junction and ending in Migdalim, where a new community is planned, to be named after Evyatar. Elyada Barak, Evyatar's older brother, told Arutz Sheva that one year after the murder, the pain is still there, but it is accompanied by feelings of joy.
