Michal Salomon and her five children who survived the July 21 terrorist attack in Halamish met with US special envoy Jason Greenblatt as his guest at the White House on Wednesday.

Salomon and her family were visiting her in-laws in the Halamish settlement when a Palestinian terrorist armed with a knife walked into their home on Friday night, killing her husband Elad, 36, her sister-in law Chaya, 46, and her father-in-law, Yosef, 70.

Greenblatt, who visited the family while they were sitting shiva in their hometown of Elad, met them in the White House and sent out a tweet after the visit.

“Privileged to welcome Michal Salomon, her 5 children & her father to the White House yesterday. Her husband, sister-in-law, and father-in-law were brutally murdered by a terrorist at the Shabbat table. Michal & her children escaped certain death only because of her courage,” he wrote.

The family is in Washington to seek support for the Taylor Force Act which, if passed by the House, would halt US aid to the Palestinian Authority unless it stops its monthly payments to terrorists and their family members.
