Newton native killed in Israel
David Martin Lelchook who grew up in Newton Center and graduated from Newton South was killed in Israel, where he has lived since the 1980s. The News Tribune has the details:
"He was a very devoted father and would do anything to be nice to people," Doris Lelchook said yesterday, just hours after learning her son had died in a guerrilla rocket attack on the kibbutz he had called home for two decades.The death of any civilian in this war -- whether Lebanese or Israeli -- is terrible. My prayers go out for the hundreds of victims and their families.
