Weston family prays with members of Congress in remembrance of son killed in terror attack


Miami Herald

Prayer was a part of Daniel Wultz’s everyday life. It was part of what drew the 16-year-old high school sophomore from Weston to visit Israel with his family in 2006, when a suicide bomber killed Daniel and 10 others outside a Tel Aviv sandwich shop.

“He prayed every day,” his mother, Sheryl Wultz, said Thursday. “H had his kippah and tzitzit on when the bombing took place. That’s what they showed me when I got to the hospital to identify him.”

Sheryl and her husband, Yekutiel “Tuly” Wultz, who was with Daniel that day and was one of 70 people injured in the blast, honored their son’s memory alongside members of Congress during a private National Day of Prayer event in the Capitol office of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va.

Cantor, who is a cousin of Sheryl Wultz, co-hosted the prayer session Thursday with U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Weston Democrat. About 25 congressional members from both sides of the aisle as well as friends and family of the Wultzes attended.

“I’m grateful to have the opportunity to honor Daniel Wultz’s memory, to make sure that we recount what happened that fateful day when he and Tuly were the unfortunate victims of a suicide bomber’s evil and hatred,” Wasserman Schultz said afterward in a telephone conference with reporters.
