Anniversary of Previous Shul Attack

On April 11, 1956, Rosh Chodesh Iyar, fedayeen terrorists entered a shul in Kfar Chabad during maariv and started shooting. Five children and one teacher were murdered, another ten injured. 

I don't recall reading any mention of it after the Har Nof shul massacre.  Articles following the recent shul slaughter made it sound like the terrorist attack in the Har Nof shul was a new outrage, in that people praying in a house of worship had been attacked, when it had been done before.  Here is a link to the tragedy of 1956: here


  1. True, synagogues and the yeshiva were attacked then too, as well as homes, in an all-out pogrom against all the Jews living in Chevron. In Kfar Chabad and Har Nof, terrorists entered a shul and killed worshipers, then left (Kfar Chabad) and were killed (Har Nof).
