Roman Jews visit Itamar, support Fogel family
Jewish delegation collects €25,000 for remaining members of Fogel family following Itamar massacre
A delegation of Roman Jews, headed by community president Riccardo Pacifici, arrived at the settlement of Itamar on Wednesday to support the residents and the Fogel family.


Earlier this month, five members of the Fogel family were stabbed to death in their beds by Palestinian terrorists.


Rome's Jewish community collected €25,000 for the remaining members of the family: Tamar, 12, Roi, 8, and two-year-old Yishai.


One of the members of the delegation said he would "adopt" the children from Italy in order to enable them to pursue higher education studies in the future.


Haim Weiss, head of the community in Itamar thanked the delegation for the visit.


"We come with a message of solidarity and support," Pacifici said.
