Beth Israel will pay tribute and remember Israel’s fallen during a Yom Hazikaron Commemoration. The event will begin at 7 p.m., commencing with the sounding of a siren as is done in Israel. The evening will include clips from the Israeli film, “Teum Kavnot - InSight” followed by talks by Sara and Yaakov Abramovich, parents of Rabbi Shlomo Abramovich. Yaakov served as a tank gunner in the Yom Kippur War and Sara will recall her childhood memories of the Six-Day War. Others who served in the IDF will also share their personal stories. The evening will conclude with the reciting of Kel Maleh Rachmim, the prayer for the souls of the departed. Anyone who served in the IDF is encouraged to participate. Contact Rabbi Shlomo or Rabbi Ari to be included.
