B’nai Brith on Sunday inaugurated a clubhouse at a fire station in Haifa in memory of a teenage victim of the Carmel blaze last December.

B’nai Brith Executive Vice President Daniel S. Mariaschin attended the ceremony which honored fire scout Elad Riven, one of the 43 killed in the conflagration. Other participants included Haifa Mayor Yona Yahav and Fire and Rescue Commissioner Gen. Shachar Ayalon.

“We hope this clubhouse will serve both to remember those who died in the fire and to provide a center for Fire Scouts to convene and continue their important work protecting northern Israel,” said Mariaschin.

“B’nai B’rith’s assistance to Israel dates back to 1865 when we provided vital support to the victims of a cholera epidemic. We will continue to provide whatever disaster relief is needed to our brothers and sisters in the Jewish state,” he said.
