[Excerpt from http://yaakovbenesther.com/ ]
Yaakov Shore is 21 and was just completing his army service as a combat soldier in Nachal Charedi. He was born in Miami and made Aliyah from Toronto when he was 10. He studied in Ateres Yisrael in Jerusalem and Waterbury in Connecticut.
On Monday, May 23rd, 2011 Yaakov was hit by a car while rollerblading by the Malcha Mall in Jerusalem. He was taken to Hadassah Ein Keren hospital with serious head trauma and a compound fracture of his right leg. He is currently in the ICU and has been put into an induced coma.
A couple of Yaakov’s strongest character traits are that:
1. He never complains (and he had lots of good causes to)
2. He never blames others (and he could have with good reason)
We are asking people to try focus on trying to be more sensitive in those areas in his merit. It will be good for all of us. READ FULL ARTICLE AT AISH.COM
