Three people were killed yesterday in a crash between a private vehicle and a truck on Route 60 in Gush Etzion,one of the victims was identified as Rabbi Uri Dasberg, 65, from Alon Shvut, who adopted his daughter’s two children after she and her husband, Efrat and Yaron Ungar, were killed by terrorists in 1996. Photo by Kobi Gideon / Flash90Israel – Rabbi Uri Dasberg, one of three casualties of a fatal crash Tuesday, was buried Wednesday and leaves behind two grandchildren, whose mother was killed in a terrorist attack, (as was reported yesterday here by VIN News).

    He and his wife Yehudit raised two surviving children of Yaron and Effie Ungar, who were orphaned when their parents were gunned down by Arab terrorists in 1996. Effie was the daughter of the Dasbergs.

    Rabbi Yisrael Rozen of the Tzomet Institute based in Alon Shvut said that he and Rabbi Dasberg”walked hand in hand for 35 years and since the founding of Tzomet.

    “He was a man of great kindness and as an editor of the Talmudic Encyclopedia, was perhaps one of the best editors or our generation.”

    Rabbi Dasberg was so modest that he eschewed the title of “rabbi” despite his having been ordained as such at the Mercaz HaRav and Kerem b’Yavneh yeshivas, Rabbi Rozen added.
