Other information

LOVE BORN OUT OF TRAGEDY
In 2005 he was still undergoing rehabilitation from his 2003 injury when he was introduced to Tozfia Gavish by a friend from Israel's One Family Fund, a group dedicated to 'helping Israel's victims of terror'. Gavish had lost her parents, brother and grandfather in a 'terrorist invasion of their home' in March 2002. The pair fell in love and soon married. At the wedding, partly funded by One Family, Elad's sister said she had brought him laughter, joy and smiles from the minute he wakes up until he goes to sleep. (onefamilyfund.org, 16 Jun 2011)
