Memorial Event for Victims of Terror

   

 
  When: Tuesday, August 5 at 8:30 - 9:30 PM
Where: Newton City Hall (War Memorial at rear)
1000 Commonwealth Avenue
Newton, MA
 
 
There will be a community-wide Memorial for Victims of Terror in Israel next Tuesday evening. The event is timed to coincide with the traditional nine days of mourning before Tisha B'Av (the ninth day of the month of Av), which commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem and the beginning of the dispersion of Jews around the world.

While the dream of a modern Jewish State has been achieved, its citizens cannot yet live in peace and security. In the past three years more than 800 people have been killed and 6000 injured by terrorist attacks. Boston area Jews will stand together to demonstrate their solidarity with their brethren in Israel at this critical time. The program will include a candle-lit memorial. Children are encouraged to bring flashlights.

 
 
Co sponsored by:
Boston Israel Action Committee,
Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston,
Combined Jewish Philanthropies,
Land of Israel Committee,
and many area communities
