Jerusalem - Terror gave birth to the ultimate happiness for Meir Pavlovsky, a 31 year old Ukranian convert to Judaism who got married today, just ten months after being brutally stabbed by an Arab terrorist in Kiryat Arba.

As previously reported on VIN News (http://goo.gl/HZUj7e), Pavlovsky sustained serious wounds in the attack which took place at the western gate to the town.  In an interview that was published by the Hebron Fund, Pavolvsky recalled that he saw his intestines protruding from his body in the moments after the attack.

“I saw my intestines coming out and I was holding them in my right hand and I lay on the ground,” recalled Pavlovsky.  “I looked to my left and saw I was lying in a pool of blood. I saw my intestines in a heap that looked like it weighed about four kilo and I started saying ‘Shema Yisroel.’  That is what I did; I kept saying Shema and made a reckoning of my life.  What I had accomplished so far. What I hadn’t done yet. I kept thinking I was going to die.”

Pavlovsky, the son of a devout Christian family who became interested in Judaism at age 11, was rushed to Shaarei Zedek hospital in Jerusalem in critical condition where doctors gave him just a ten percent chance of survival.  Pavolvsky defied the odds, leaving the hospital a week after the attack and proposing for a second time to his fiancee, Katya Tailor, three days later in Chevron, as reported by Israeli news site Ynet.

Among those at the wedding, which took place near the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City, were Knesset members Moti Yogev and Yehuda Glick.  Also present was Shuki Gilboa, a member of the Kiryat Arba secuity team who was wounded in the terror attack that killed 13 year old Hallel Yaffa Ariel in June.

“We are so happy that we have merited the opportunity to build another Jewish home,” said Pavlovski after the chupah, which was conducted by Rabbi Dov Lior, chief rabbi of Chevron and Kiryat Arba.  “This is one small act of revenge against terror and with Hashem’s help we will continue and become stronger.”
