Avraham Fried sings about Shalhevet

The murder of Shalhevet Pass was the gunning down of a ten-month-old Israeli infant by a Palestinian terrorist on March 26, 2001. On that day, Shalhevet Pass (Hebrew: שלהבת פס‎) was shot in the head and killed by a Palestinian sniper while seated in her stroller on the streets of Hebron, where she and her family lived. The bullet, which killed Shalhevet, then hit the leg of her father, Yitzchak Pass, who was pushing the stroller. Israeli investigators believed the snipers were intentionally targeting the baby. The murder of Shalhevet Pass, which came relatively early in the Al-Aqsa Intifada, produced vocal outrage in Israel and abroad.
Abraham Fried, in Concert at the Town Hall for the 2001 Hebron Benefit composed this song in her honor.
