On Saturday night, October 29th, Ronen Hanania took a post-Sabbath trip with his son Daniel to a local convenience store in the Judean city of Kiryat Arba, next to Hebron. He had just spent a beautiful Sabbath with his family.
As the father and son walked out of the store to their car, a despicable terrorist opened fire on them, shooting Ronen in the head.
As his Daniel recalled, “The bullet entered from above and his head opened up. He was breathing, he had a pulse, but his brain had been damaged… he had no chance of living. I saw my father die…I was lucky to witness his final moments.”
Ronen Hanania was murdered for one reason only: He was a Jew living in his Biblical Homeland.
Ronen was a hard-working son, husband, and father, who dedicated his life to raising a family and resettling the Biblical Heartland of Israel.
He could have lived anywhere in Israel but felt a calling to live close to the Tomb of the Patriarchs – Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Ronen deeply loved the Land of Israel.
He leaves behind his wife Meirav, his son Daniel, and most tragically, his elderly mother Perala.
WHY SHOULD AN ELDERLY MOTHER HAVE TO SUFFER LIKE THIS?! TO BURY HER BELOVED SON?
The pain of losing a son, husband, or father is unimaginable. All the more so when he’s been murdered in cold blood by a terrorist.
Imagine if you had to watch your loved one get shot in front of your eyes! Imagine the deep pain and suffering. How could you go on living?

A letter from our founder, Rabbi Tuly Weisz
I started Israel365 in 2012 as an email to friends and family. The goal was to connect the Lovers of Israel with the Land and People of Israel, every day of the year.
“It is a land which Hashem God looks after, on which Hashem your God always keeps His eye, from year’s beginning to year’s end.” (Deuteronomy 11:12)
Ten years later, Israel 365 has blossomed. We now bring the Land of the Bible into the homes and hearts of millions of Jews and Christians around the world. Our readers love our daily emails, our Israel Bible, and the causes we support. Our regular charity projects in Israel include renovating the apartments of Holocaust survivors, programs for IDF soldiers, and assisting terror victims financially. We also plant trees to beautify the Land, and support farmers who observe the Sabbatical (Shemittah) year.
Please join us and bring the blessings of the Land and People of Israel to the whole world.
“I will bless those who bless you…And all the families of the earth will bless themselves by you.” (Genesis 12:3)
