Hindy Rosmarin of New York, who was engaged to Pinchas Menachem Knoblowitz before he was killed in last year's Meron disaster, is now engaged again.

Knoblowitz was one of 45 people killed on Lag Ba'omer last year during a mass crowd crush at the gravesite of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai in Meron.

Pinchas Menachem and Hindy had become engaged a short time before Lag Ba'omer last year, and were to be married following the upcoming holiday season.

Following the Meron disaster, the Knoblowitz family, Gerrer hasidim from New York, decided to mark the scheduled wedding day by dedicating a Torah scroll in their son's memory.

Yisrael Diskin, whose brother Simcha Bunim was also killed in the Meron disaster, sent congratulations to the new couple, saying, "May G-d grand that they live long lives together, in happiness, wealth, and joy."
