Jun 18, 2002 – Dr. Moshe Gottlieb, 70 of Jerusalem was one of 19 people killed in a suicide bombing at the Patt junction in Egged bus no. 32A traveling from Gilo to the center of Jerusalem.
The terrorist boarded the bus at 7:50 A.M. at the stop in Beit Safafa, an Arab neighborhood opposite Gilo and almost immediately detonated the large bomb which he carried in a bag stuffed with ball bearings. The blast destroyed the front half of the bus packed with people on their way to work and schoolchildren. Of the 19 victims, 17 were residents of the Gilo neighborhood; 74 people were injured.
Dr. Moshe Gottlieb boarded the bus in the morning en route to Bnei Brak where he was due to work with a group of children with Down’s Syndrome. For years, he had been treating them for free once a week. Gottlieb who immigrated to Israel with his family from the United States 24 years ago was a chiropractor and maintained a private practice in both Jerusalem and Bnei Brak.
Moshe Gottlieb was buried in Jerusalem. He is survived by his wife Sheila, a son and a daughter and 12 grandchildren.
