Assaf Harofeh Medical Center Races in Memory of Soldier

Nearly 50 employees from Assaf Harofeh Medical Center participated in a special race that was held in memory of Solomon Gaviria.

Solomon was one of two soldiers who were murdered in a terror attack that occurred nearly two months ago on Har Adar. Solomon’s mother, Yashiyamabat, is an employee at Assaf Harofeh and the hospital community wanted to come together to show his mother and family their support.

The race took place in Beer Yaakov, the neighbourhood where Solomon lived. Solomon has been described by friends and family as an “Outstanding pupil with a big heart who loved the country and wanted to protect it.”  

One runner, Haim Izbitsky, shared, “We have come today to participate in the race out of deep solidarity of our family and our work friend, Yashiyamabat Gaviria. We pray that this special commemoration will bring some relief to the grieving family and we will continue to embrace and accompany his mother and the family.”
