Yoav Hattab z''l
France 2 TV has carried this moving interview (7:25) with the father of Yoav Hattab, 21 one of the four Jewish hostages murdered by an Islamist terrorist in the kosher supermarket at the Porte de Vincennes, Paris, last Friday.
His voice cracking, Benjamin Hattab, the rabbi at the Great synagogue in Tunis and headmaster of a Jewish school, says that he had looked forward to marrying, not burying his son.
He never imagined that his son, who was pursuing his studies in marketing, would be less safe in Paris than in Tunisia.
However, his son had already said that he was afraid of walking around Paris wearing a kippa (skullcap). He concealed his kippa beneath a baseball cap.
Rabbi Hattab has six other children.
