More than 2,000 children and adults are taking part in the ‘City of Light’ march in memory of Ori Ansbacher Tuesday evening.
One of the initiators of the event, Eliasaf Peretz, the son of Israel Prize laureate Miriam Peretz, who lost his two brothers in Israel’s wars, said during the event: “We gathered here tonight because of a terrible heartbreak. We gathered to cry, and to knock on the doors of the heart, and to grab onto those sparks of hope.”
“We have gathered here because we do not agree to let the wicked win,” said Peretz.
“We stand here in Jerusalem, different people, different faces and different opinions, in order to take responsibility. Unfortunately, we could not prevent this murder, but we managed to prevent the indifference. We stand here and take responsibility for our extended [family], to show the kind of people we are.
“We stand here in pain over the human life which was snuffed out here a week and a half ago Thursday,” he said.
