Her father and brother were murdered days before their wedding. Now Sarah Litman and her groom Ariel have invited everyone to their wedding.

Sarah Litman and Ariel Biegel were supposed to get married Tuesday, November 17. Instead the bride sat shivah for her father and brother who were gunned down in their car outside of Hebron, on the way to celebrate the Shabbat Chatan, the Shabbat before the wedding. The terrorists shot at the car, killing Rabbi Yaakov Litman and his son Netanel, 18, wounding Sarah’s mother, Noa and four siblings.

“This evening, instead of wearing the bridal dress, I will sit on the floor with a torn shirt,” Sarah told the Yediot Aharonot on Tuesday. “But very soon, we will marry in a large and happy wedding. We will go on and be happy as Father and Netanel always were. We will not be crushed.”
