Yom HaZikaron (Israel’s Memorial Day) Observance

On Monday morning, the entire KSDS community gathered to remember the lives of Israeli soldiers and civilians lost in wars and terrorist attacks. This Yom Hazikaron service included songs of remembrance and hope, as well as written passages that paid tribute to lost lives and yearned for peace. Everybody stood with respect as the Israeli flag was lowered to half staff and the memorial candle was lit. At the closing of the ceremony, two eighth grade representatives shared their excitement for their upcoming trip to Israel, which serves as a culmination to all their years of learning and growing at Krieger Schechter. We wish them a safe, meaningful, and memorable trip.
