JERUSALEM - The UJA Federation of Greater Toronto raised more than $100,000 for the family of a victim of a terror attack on a Jerusalem synagogue.

Jewish Agency for Israel Chairman Natan Sharansky presented a check for more than $100,000 to the family of Howie Chaim Rothman on Monday. Rothman’s wife, Risa, and his brother Steven, who is visiting from Toronto, met with Sharansky in Jerusalem.

Howie Rothman immigrated to Israel from Toronto 30 years ago. He and his wife have 10 children.

Rothman, who was brought to the hospital without a pulse in the wake of the Nov. 18 attack, remains in a coma.
