Daniel Cantor Wultz from Florida was vacationing here with his parents, Cheryl and Israeli-born Tuly (Yekutiel), and his sister Amanda, during Pessah when he and his father decided to have lunch at a kosher-for-Passover shwarma stand in Tel Aviv. A suicide bomber also chose that shwarma stand, and the resulting explosion critically wounded 16-year-old Daniel. For nearly a month he clung to life at Hadassah Hospital before succumbing to his wounds on May 14, 2006. Described by his rabbi as 'the sweetest, most sincere, committed and determined young man,' Daniel was an avid basketball fan who volunteered with special needs children and befriended lonely kids on the school bus. He wanted to become a rabbi and live in Israel.
Shortly after his death, Daniel;s parents established the Daniel Cantor Wultz Foundation to promote tolerance through sports and educational activities. The family worked with the Boston-based David Project to create a curriculum for high school students and organized events in the greater Miami area to promote tolerance including programs with the Robert Sheinberg YMCA of Weston where Daniel participated in sports. The foundation remained active through the Wultz family's settlement with Bank of China.
