From Stephen Allen Please accept my condolences on the tragic loss of Rav Uriel. Even though I only had minimal contact with him, he was a true inspiration and a great pioneer for the Shomeron and Eretz Yisrael. In 2009, I met him in Karnei Shomron at the Lag B'Omer bonfire. I have him on video saying the following to me and my family: "I wish all your family understand that they're supposed to come to here because this is the place of the Jewish [people]…I know it's not easy, but slowly, slowly, we must be hero. And go, and come back to this land, the Holy Land, to Eretz Yisrael, because very soon all the Jewish [people] are supposed to come back, b'ezrat Hashem. I wish to all of you, successful. God bless you in what you are doing. God bless you and thank you very much. Bye bye."
