Dr Moshe Gottlieb, 74, a native New Yorker, and wife Sheila made aliyah from Los Angeles in 1978. A well-known and respected chiropractor, he established private practices in Jerusalem and B'nei Brak and served as gabbai of the synagogue in the capital's Gilo neighborhood.
On the morning of June 18, 2002, he was on the way to his weekly voluntary treatments of Down's Syndrome children in B'nei Brak. Minutes after he boarded the #32 bus from Gilo to the Central Bus Station it was blown up by a suicide bomber. He is survived by his wife, a son and a daughter, brother, and twelve grandchildren.
