Memorial for Mercaz HaRav Kedoshim


mercaz1Eight Sifrei Torah are being dedicated this hour at the Mercaz HaRav Yeshiva in Yerushalayim in memory of the eight bochurim murdered by an Arab terrorist last year. The families of each of the victims will accept one of the Sifrei Torah, all of which were commissioned by a single anonymous donor. The ceremony includes the writing by the families of the final osiyos of each of the Sifrei Torah.

The memorial occasion will marks a worldwide siyum of Shas  l’illui nishmas the kedoshim sponsored by B’Lev Echad and Mercaz HaRav. The entire Shas was completed more than three times.

The Mercaz HaRav kedoshim were Yonatan Yitzchak Eldar, Ro’i Aharon Roth, Neria Cohen, Avraham David Moses, Segev Pniel Avichayil, Doron Mahareta, Yonadav Hirschfeld, and Yochai Lifschitz. Hashem yinkom domom.

Last week, a highly emotional bris milah was held at the yeshiva, when the bris of a son of one of the men who killed the terrorist of the Mercaz HaRav murders was performed by the father of one of the victims.
