Last Saturday night, a day after the terror attacks in Paris, my father called to say that my uncle, Philippe Braham, had been killed as he was checking out at the Hyper Casher kosher supermarket, just before Shabbos. He was murdered in a neighborhood I know well, Porte de Vincennes, a few minutes away from my high school, and a mere 10-minute ride from my childhood home. He was one of mine, a relative, but together with all the other victims of the horrific crimes last week, he was also one of ours.
