In a statement on the death of IAF officer Capt. Assaf Ramon in an F-16 crash in the Hebron Hills, Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Yona Metzger on Sunday night called on Jews to study holy scriptures and mend their ways. "This is a great tragedy for all of us. This is a son who followed in his father's footsteps and was willing to sacrifice his life for his people and country," Metger said.

"I call on every Jew who can spare the time to study a Mishna for the ascent of the soul of Assaf, son of Ilan," the rabbi wrote.
