When the Siren Cries

This year on Israel’s Memorial Day, the siren will sound through Israel as it does every year; but this year its ring will be much more piercing. For this year has been unlike any other. We have not only lost soldiers in battle; but we have lost ordinary citizens in ways that we can hardly bear to speak of. And through this all, we have also been witness to heroism and fortitude that is astounding. We have also seen a coming together throughout the Jewish world of a connectedness that is deep and profound.

This session will honor the fallen through stories, songs and poems that have been written in the wake of this momentous year – and we will remember and give thanks to those brave individuals who put aside their own needs to protect the nation and to protect freedom.
