Lest we forget

The Sol Liebgott Hall at Yeshiva College in Johannesburg was packed to capacity on Tuesday evening, when more than 2,000 community members congregated during the annual Yom Hazikaron ceremony to pay homage to those who have died so that Israel may be free.

Of the more than 23,300 Israelis who have died in defence of the state or in terrorist attacks since 1948, 87 were of South African origin.

The guest speaker was South African-born Professor Shmuel Eidelman, whose son, Ronen, was killed during a fierce battle near Beirut Airport during the 1982 Lebanon War.

As in previous years, the ceremony featured the lighting of memorial candles for those who fell in each of Israel’s wars and through terrorism and intifadas. Israel’s Ambassador to South Africa, Arthur Lenk (pictured), paid tribute to the fallen men and women, noting that the Jewish people need to continue to build a society that is worthy of their memory.
