Kafir Levy, a Givat fighter, one of the most severely wounded of the IDF in Gaza, was injured by a direct hit from an RPG missile in Yishuv Netzer. Since then he has undergone 180 surgeries in Israel and around the world. Kafir Levy was injured in 2002, while guarding a position in Yishuv Netzer. His choice of heart is a new immigrant from the Philippines whom he met as a kafir about two years ago as part of her visit to Israel, Tikva, connected to Judaism, and went through a conversion process, and at the end of it, they got married.
His parents, Zion Shei and his mother Gila, who died, did everything to improve his condition. The Chabad emissary, Rabbi Menachem Kutner of the Chabad Youth Headquarters for the Victims of Terrorism, has accompanied Kafir since his injury through the ups and downs of the long rehabilitation.
Among other things, they visited together the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s tent in New York, and prayed that he would be able to establish a faithful house in Israel. At the end of the week, the great miracle happened as a kafir carried a hope in a particularly moving huppah, in which Rabbi Kutner was honored with a chuppah arrangement and kiddoshin. “There was not a dry eye left in the moving canopy when the whole audience chanted together ‘Thank God that He is good because His mercy is forever’!” said Rabbi Kutner.--
A kafir in the opinion of the Lubavitch Rebbe
Kafir Levy said in a conversation with Ynet. “I haven’t recovered yet, I was very excited at the wedding. It was exciting that all my friends who were with me at the time of the injury came and were happy with me. I didn’t believe I would get to this moment. But it happened in the end. God heard my voice. This is the biggest dream I had and I fulfilled it. Now I I will live life.”
