CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Bat Sheva Unterman, 33, and Elizabeth Goren-Friedman, 54, killed in Wednesday's terror attack in the heart of Jerusalem, were laid to rest late the same evening.

Unterman, who taught in a religious kindergarten in Jerusalem's Har Homa neighborhood, managed to unfasten her five-month-old daughter's seatbelt and hand her to safety before the bulldozer crushed her to death.

Her husband, Ido, learned of his wife's death and his daughter's survival several hours later.

"Until Efrat was born, the children in the kindergarten were like her own and she was a 'nanny' of the highest excellence, with exemplary patience for each and every child," said her close friend, Meira Schwartz.

Goren-Friedman taught at the Jerusalem School for the Blind. She was divorced and the mother of three children, Zvi, 23, Issachar, 19, and Yael, 16.

"It's hard to speak about her in the past tense," said her friend and colleague Rachel Sakrovish. "Lili was a wonderful person. There was not a student whom she didn't help progress on a personal, educational and rehabilitative level," Sakrovish said.

"When I think of her, I remember the phrase [from Proverbs 31], 'a woman of valor, who can find,'" she said.

The third victim of Wednesday's attack, Jean Relevy, 68, lived in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo and worked as an air-conditioner technician.

Born in Iran, Ralevy is survived by his wife, Hannah, two daughters and a son.

A devoted family man, he was looking forward to becoming a grandfather in a little more than a month.

Ralevy was buried on Thursday at midday.
