  1. May G_d decree that the 20 year-old yeshivah student who was recently killed in the parking lot of the yeshivah has permission to stand before the His Throne and intercede on behalf of all Jews, especially those Jews who believe in Torah.

    Contrary to what many people believe, parking lots are NOT SAFE PLACES.
    I said that several times in the past and now I must say it again.
