Haim Smadar, 55, was killed on Friday while blocking the suicide bomber from entering the supermarket in Kiryat Yovel in Jerusalem. Smadar, who worked as a guard at a school, was only working at the supermarket during the Passover holidays. Smadar was born Tunis and immigrated to Israel when he was 2-years-old. He was well-known for his diligence and good relations with those he worked with and served. "It is so characteristic of him that he was the one to block the terrorist from entering the supermarket," one of the parents of pupils whose school he guarded said of Smadar. He is survived by his wife and five children.
