Supermarket Victim Yoav Hattab Recently Returned from Birthright Trip

Yoav Hattab, one of the victims of last week’s Paris kosher supermarket shooting, recently returned from a Birthright Israel trip.

Hattab, 21, was one of four victims of the Friday shooting, which followed an attack earlier in the week at the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo in Paris, which claimed 12 victims.

“In the past year, Taglit-Birthright Israel took a strategic position to invest and significantly increase its actions to bring more young Jewish adults to Israel from France and will continue to do so under any circumstances,” Taglit-Birthright Israel CEO Gidi Mark said in a statement. “My thoughts are with the families and with the Jewish community of France at these difficult times.”

The Israeli Prime Minister’s office confirmed Sunday that all four victims of the supermarket attack would be buried in Israel.

A Facebook page honoring Hattab was launched on Saturday.
