On March 11, 2011 Udi Fogel, 36, Ruth Fogel, 35, and three of their children - Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and three-month-old Hadas - were stabbed to death in their sleep by two young Palestinian men who infiltrated the West Bank settlement.

The three children who survived, Tamar (14), Roi (10) and Yishai (4) are currently living with their grandparents in Jerusalem.
Shocking pictures from the scene of the massacre in Itamar were published worldwide.
"I understand why no one wanted to move into the house until now," a local settler told Yedioth. "Children here are still having nightmares about the murders."
The 20 families that have relocated to Itamar since the massacre all refused to move into the Fogel house, which overlooks the terrorists' home village of Awarta.
But a few months ago a family of eight from Itamar answered a "house for rent" advertisement placed by the Fogel family in the local newspaper.
"We are not afraid," said the father, who asked to remain anonymous. "On the contrary, we are glad to be able to express our faith in this way and prove to those who hate us that we are persevering and that we are stronger than they are.
"(God) runs the world, and he is watching over us," he added.
The father, his wife and their six children, who are all under the age of five, are expected to move into the house after Tisha B'Av, which will be observed on Sunday.
"The nation of Israel will grow stronger," the rabbi said. "The murderers will not deter us."
