Challenged Faith

with Mrs. Devorah Halberstam, activist against terrorism

Building on your perception of Emunah and Bitachon from a woman of untold fortitude and inner strength.  Hear her story; find the power in your own!

Devorah HalberstamOn March 1st, 1994, a Lebanese gunman murdered 16-year old Ari Halberstam in a terrorist attack on the Brooklyn Bridge.

Grief and fury over her beloved elder son’s murder transformed his mother, Devorah Halberstam, into an activist and crusader against terrorism.

After the FBI’s initial classification of the shooting as an act of “road rage”, Devorah led a one-woman battle to have her son’s death reclassified as an act of terrorism. Six years later, the FBI finally recognized the attack as a terrorist act.
She pounded the halls of Congress, offices of elected officials and the New York court system, where she advocated reforms in our government. She campaigned for changes in our judicial and immigrations systems, where she pursued deportation proceedings against the accomplices who flouted American immigration laws.
She brought the first lawsuit in the history of American jurisprudence against the gun manufacturer that supplied Ari’s killer with the arsenal of weapons he used in the shooting.
Her endless struggle for justice did not end there. She continued, advocating in the state for the passing of “Ari’s Law” as part of a comprehensive gun control bill, which prohibits interstate gun trafficking.
Ari’s Law is also pending in Congress which would ban the sale of gun kits.
She helped craft new law in Congress that has reduced the abuses found in the political   asylum process.

Devorah authored together with Governor George E. Pataki the first New York State laws to counter terrorism, which included the death penalty for the crimes of a terrorist. These were signed into law by Governor Pataki in 2001.  Devorah was appointed by the Governor to serve on the New York State Commission on Terrorism.

The ramp to the Brooklyn Bridge has been renamed the Ari Halberstam Memorial Ramp by Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.
Devorah is a frequent speaker who has traveled around the country speaking to the civic community and on college campuses about he tragedy that took her son’s life and educating the public about the threats of terrorism in New York, the United States, and around the world. She currently instructs local, state and federal  law enforcement agencies on terrorism- related issues.
