Pvt. Yehuda Bamberger
Dec 27, 2002 - Pvt. Yehuda Bamberger, 20, of Karnei Shomron was one of four yeshiva students killed in Otniel while working in the yeshiva kitchen, serving the Shabbat meal to some 100 students in the adjacent dining room.
Around 7:30 P.M. Friday, two terrorists from the nearby
St.-Sgt. Noam Apter, who was on kitchen duty, managed to lock the door to the adjoining dining room before he was shot dead, saving the lives of the students seated at the tables, who opened fire from the dining room. The two terrorists from the Islamic Jihad, which claimed responsibility for the attack, were later killed by IDF forces.
Yehuda Bamberger was the eldest in his family. He completed his high school studies, majoring in computers, at the Karnei Shomron yeshiva, headed by his father, Zvi Bamberger. He loved to study, and his father described him as a "walking encyclopedia." Yehuda began his IDF service at the Otniel hesder yeshiva, combining Torah study with army service, and was to have begun paratroop training on Tuesday. He chose to remain at the yeshiva for Shabbat in order not to interrupt his studies and was killed in the attack.
