Join us to hear first hand accounts of tragedy and resilience Kay Wilson
One winter's day in 2011, Kay Wilson's life would change forever. On a hike with her friend Kristine Luken in the Mata forest, near the city of Beit Shemesh, the two were subjected to a brutal attack by two Arab terrorists, Aiad Fatfata and Kifah Ghanimat. The savage ordeal left Kristine dead, and Kay fighting for her life - spared the same fate only by playing dead despite the excruciating pain.
With her hands still bound behind her back, Kay staggered barefoot and bleeding heavily from multiple stab wounds for more than 1,200 meters until reaching a parking lot where a family alerted the authorities. Kay was hospitalized in the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in a critical condition. Due to Kay stabbing one of the attackers with a small penknife, the DNA on her knife led to the capture of a terror cell. Kay has been declared a heroine by the Israeli Shin Bet and the Israeli press.
