    Lavi was critically wounded in the May 31st terror attack in the Old City, during which a 19-year-old Palestinian Arab terrorist stabbed and wounded two Israelis before being shot and killed by Israeli security personnel.

    Forty-seven-year-old Lavi was initially listed in critical condition, but was later downgraded to serious but stable condition.

    “I realized that I was between life and death,” said Lavi Wednesday. “Thanks to the prayers from my friends in yeshiva, everything turned around for the best.”

    “All of the prayers gave me so much strength and helped me not despair because of my difficult situation.”

    Despite his brush with death, Lavi said he would not be deterred from visiting the Old City of Jerusalem via the Damascus Gate, which lies in a predominantly Muslim Arab area, where confrontations between locals and Jewish visitors are common.
