I sit in tears, this picture is so pathetic. It is a man's tefilin. The mark of a Jew and his connection to Hashem.
My heart breaks for this man and the others and their families whom now must bury their loved ones.
It is said that when a man dons his tefilin, Hashem connects with that man. That special connection has been cut violently short because of the murderers hate of this connection.
May HAshem avenge the spilled blood of His martyred servants. May those whose lives were cut short rest in Gan Eden and may we see moshiach this year. Please Hashem.
