Ari Fuld's family rose to his grave Friday morning in Gush Etzion, then continued to the site of the terror attack in order to pass on a message of empowerment centered around Fuld's Jewish pride and hope for the future.

"We have grown and will continue to grow from what has happened and we choose life," said Yonah Fuld, Ari's father. "Despite the private, bitter pain, we are filled with pride at his bravery and from the path Ari lived his life on. We'll continue on his way."

"He is a part of us," Tamar, Fuld's daughter, said.

Ari Fuld lived in Efrat with his wife Miriam, and was the father of Tamar, Naomi, Yakir and Natan. He served as a sergeant in an elite paratroopers unit in the IDF reserves, and also served on the Efrat emergency squad. He was murdered in a terrorist attack on Sunday.

The family said that they are overwhelmed by the great hug they receive from the nation and requested that the Israeli people "continue on this way—the proud, headstrong, Jewish way in the land of Israel. This is what Ari would have wanted."
