President Shimon Peres sent a letter to the Fogel family on Wednesday, marking a year since the brutal murder of five members of the Fogel family by two Palestinian terrorists in the West Bank settlement of Itamar.

"Ruth, Ehud, Yoav, Elad and Hadas, blessed be their memory. An entire family. Parents and their young children that were cruelly slaughtered in cold blood at their home in Itamar on the eve of the Sabbath. The year that has passed since that shocking day cannot even slightly serve to dull the terrible pain, the longing and the sorrow," the president said in the letter.Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin took part in a ceremony in Itamar in which a Beit Midrash for the study of Torah was inaugurated in the name of Ehud Fogel on Wednesday.

Rivlin said that Ruth and Ehud Fogel served as an example of "devotion to building up Israel."
