Koby Mandell was horrifically murdered by Arab terrorists back in 2001 at the tender age of 13 together with his friend 14-year-old friend Yosef Ishran near their home in Tekoa, Judea.

His parents, Rabbi Seth Mandell and his wife Sherri, recently spoke about how the horrible tragedy affected their lives, and their work in the Koby Mandell Foundation to "replace" the strength that he would have brought to the world if his life hadn't been tragically cut short.
