Yom Hazicaron

Today is Yom Hazicaron, (from sundown tonight till sundown tomorrow)Israeli Memorial Day, when we give thanks to the countless young men and women who gave their lives so that we can live.

The Yishuv gathered at the kicar (traffic circle)at the entrance to the Yishuv , shivering in an unexpected cold snap, our eyes on the speakers stnding beneath the olive tree planted in memory of one young man from the Yishuv killed by terrorist several years ago.

Prayers were said, speeches given, and a statement of hope that we may soon see a time of peace, where no more need die.

That is our ardent wish; to live in peace, in our land, free from fear.

May we all live to see the coming of the Moshiach (Messiah) and may peace come to the world.
