Jerusalem - Once again, Jews worldwide are mourning the loss of a life cut all too short, as 21 year old Hadar Buchris was buried this afternoon at Har Hamenuchos in Jerusalem.

Hundreds turned out to say goodbye to Buchris who was killed yesterday in stabbing attack in Gush Etzion.

Buchris’ family traveled from Netanya for the funeral and her mother, Segal, told Yediot Aharanot that she had been concerned about her daughter’s choice to live in Gush Etzion, in order to study in a women’s college.

“We know the Gush well,” said Mrs. Buchris.  “She was born there in Beitar Ilit and we lived there for years.  Her whole childhood was spent in Beitar Ilit and she was tied to the place.”

Hadar Buchris returned from a vacation to India just two weeks ago.

“When she was in India I didn’t worry about her at all,” said Mrs. Buchris.  “When she came back is when I first started worrying.”

Many could be seen at the funeral leaning on each other for support as they surrounded the body, draped by a dark velvet cloth adorned with a gold Magen Dovid, wondering how a 21 year old who was known for her oversized heart could have been brutally murdered in cold blood.

Hadar Buchris leaves behind her parents, Aryeh and Segal and four siblings, as reported by Israeli news sites Walla and Maariv.

Aryeh Buchris described his daughter as wise and sensitive to the needs of others.

“You had a big heart and everything was open for you, how much you wanted to please others,” said Aryeh Buchris.  “Your tragic departure has left us in pain.  We are stunned and aching. We can barely carry this.  You are the type of girl who was larger than life.  The ache is immense, enormous, but we will stay strong and keep the family together, now more than ever.  I promise you that. We won’t stop missing you or thinking about you.”

Hadar Buchris’ grandmother, Sara Dror eulogized her granddaughter, saying that her three daughters had given her 13 grandchildren.

“Our Hadari, you grew up early and you left your parents house at age 14 to study in ulpan. Today we are standing by your grave and we can’t believe we are burying a granddaughter at such a young age.”

Mrs. Dror noted that the family had expressed concern about Hadar’s decision to live in Gush Etzion.

“We told you it was dangerous there, but you reminded us that everything is in Hashem’s hands.”

In her remarks, sister Noa Buchris spoke about her feelings one day after her sister was savagely murdered.

“Hadar, you are with us, but you will not be with us ever again,” lamented Noa Buchris. “We are not separated because you will continue to live on inside of me.  Only recently have I begun to understand how privileged I am to be a part of the Jewish nation, which is alive and will live on forever.”

Noa Buchris also read remarks written by her brother Hillel.

“Just one day before I had spoken about the five korbanos who were taken from us on Thursday.  I never dreamed that we would be standing here, burying you. I love so, so much.”

Sister Maayan Buchris said that even after her death, Hadar continued to inspire and she recalled how the two embraced and took care of each other just one week earlier when they spent Shabbos together.

“Your light influences us even now,” said Maayan Buchris.  “It doesn’t stop, it just comes from a greater place, on high.  I don’t know what I will do now.  Who I will call when things are difficult?  I am coming to terms with the idea that you are not alive and it is hard for me that you are no longer here with me. I wanted to get married and to bring my children to visit you but it seems that you were destined for greater things.”

Buchri’s older brother Zohar noted that his sister’s death was incomprehensible.

“We can’t accept that a cold blooded killer took you,” said Zohar Buchris.  “We miss you already and we will always remember you.  We can only hope that you will be the last korban in this cruel world ... Go rest my beautiful sister.  We already miss you. You know how much I loved you and we will always remember you.  Go rest beautiful girl.”

Among the mourners were Israel’s chief rabbi, Rabbi Dovid Lau and several elected officials, including Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Jerusalem mayor Nir Barakat, all of whom expressed their condolences to the Buchris family.  Elan Shochet, mayor of Tzefas, spoke about Hadar Buchris’ love of Eretz Yisroel, a concept reiterated by Knesset member and Minister of Religious Services, David Azoulai.

“Hadar you traveled on roads that were long and dangerous but your last journey is being made in the land that you love,” said Azoulai.  “You are in an elevated place now and nothing can prevent someone who dies al kiddush Hashem from the highest rewards.  All of the heavenly court is coming out to greet you.”

The real murderers are the criminally insane self hating cowardly leftist swines governing Israel,who absolutely refuse to protect their country and it's people.

Israel is the only country in the world where over 20% of its population is a traitorous fifth column who are deadly enemies of the state and its majority jewish population,no country can exist with such a disatorous situation,there is one and only solution THEY ALL MUST GO,anything else is NATIONAL SUICIDE,any government that does not realize this obvious truth is DELUSIONAL and will lead to CATASTROPHE ,
People of Israel you have only two rational choices,either you throw them ALL out or you start packing your bags and getting the hell out of there ,anything else is NATIONAL SUICIDE.
Jews in Israel you must rise up in a popular uprising and vomit out this TRAITOROUS regime and install a government that will do what is necessary to protect it's land and people,either you do this or start packing your bags.
