The parents of a Hebrew teacher who was killed in an anti-Semitic attack in Yemen have made aliyah.
Yisrael (Yaish) and Terneja Nahari, the parents of the late Moshe Nahari, immigrated to Israel on Monday.
Moshe Nahari was a ritual slaughterer and Hebrew teacher in the town of Raydah in the Amran Governorate of northwestern Yemen. In December 2008, the 35-year-old father of 9 was shot dead by an Islamist extremist who reportedly had demanded that he convert to Islam. He was buried in Yemen.
After the murder, Moshe Nahari’s parents remained in Raydah in order to campaign for his murderer to be brought to justice. The murderer was caught, but, despite being found guilty by a court in Yemen, has not been sentenced.
