Yom HaZikaron (a day to commemorate Israeli fallen soldiers) is April 17/18. In Judaism, we value human life, hold people’s memories dear, and keep a person’s memory alive. We do so in a variety of ways; lighting a yahrzeit candle, naming new life for them, talking about the person, doing mitzvot in their honor, saying a prayer on the anniversary of their yahrzeit, etc.
A special exhibit leading up to Yom HaZikaron, “Gone Too Soon”, is planned for our community this year. Between March 16 - April 17, posters of fallen soldiers will be on display at several St. Paul area Jewish institutions. Talmud Torah of St. Paul will host a reception on Wednesday, April 11, from 5:30-6:00 pm for the exhibit. Please join us to view the exhibit and hear the memorial's organizer, shlichaTal Dror, talk about this meaningful project. Students will also get to hear their individual stories during their classes.
Community members and TTSP families are welcome to come in, look at, and read about these soldiers anytime between March 16 – April 17. We look forward to sharing this meaningful special event with you!
