The teenager, who suffered burns and broken bones, was transferred Monday to a rehabilitation hospital. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Rozenman founded a group called Women Shaping the Future just days after the attack.

"As I lay on the floor next to my son at Hadassah Hospital's burn unit, Noam asked me how something like this could happen. I told him I didn't know, but promised that I would do something so that it wouldn't happen again," she said.

In addition to planning the vigil, the organization formed a support group and organized teens to visit hospitalized victims of terror attacks. It also hopes to form a dialogue group of Jewish and Arab mothers.

Jewish women in 30 other cities around the world held solidarity vigils for the five who died and the more than 190 who were injured in the attack.

Meanwhile, an 84-year-old Israeli has died of wounds sustained in the July 30 twin-suicide bombing in Mahane Yehuda.

Baruch Ostrovsky, a resident of Jerusalem, was burned severely in the blast. Hospital officials said he never regained consciousness before dying Friday of last week.

Ostrovsky, who immigrated from Russia seven years ago, was the 16th Israeli who died as a result of the attack. At least 170 others were wounded.
