Life Story

Shalom (Shuli), son of Tziporah and Moshe, was born in Israel on October 13, 1978. He was raised in Kochav Hashahar in the Benyamin region.
After high-school, Shuli served in the IDF as an emergency medical technician through the Hesder Yeshiva program.
On Lag B’Omer 2001, Shuli married Limor. The couple moved to Homesh in the Northern Shomron shortly after their marriage, determined to strengthen and be strengthened together with the community. Their son, Ahuvya Yair, was born in Homesh. Shuli initiated and established the new yeshiva in Homesh. He studied in the Kedumim High Yeshiva and taught in the local kindergarten and elementary school. He also numbered among the Hatzalah volunteers in Yehuda and Shomron, as a medic and ambulance driver.
Since the day of their arrival, the Har-Melechs integrated into the community, in which religious and non-religious lived together. Shuli was active in encouraging additional people to join the community.

On Friday morning, August 29, 2003, the Har-Melechs were returning home to Homesh from visiting Shuli’s parents in Kochav Hashahar. When they drove on the Alon road, north of Kochav Hashahar, five terrorists surprised them at a curve of the road and fired at them with automatic weapons. Both were wounded. Shuli was killed on the spot, and his wife Limor was critically wounded.
Limor, who was seven months pregnant, was transferred to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem, where she gave birth several hours later to their daughter, Sarah.
Shuli was 24 years old when killed. He was laid to rest at the Kochav Hashahar cemetery. He left behind parents, a wife, a son and daughter, and six siblings.
The Yeshiva in Homesh, which Shuli initiated and established, was named after him “Yeshivat Har Shalom.”
