Hundreds of pupils from the AMIT school network will be present in cemeteries nationwide on Remembrance Day, to hold memorial ceremonies for fallen soldiers whose relatives are no longer alive, and to help bereaved families complete 10-man quorums to enable the saying of kaddish with a minyan.
The students of the network’s AMIT Dvir Beit Shemesh school also
cleaned the headstones of IDF soldiers’ graves in the nearby Hartov
cemetery ahead of Monday’s ceremonies.
The initiative begun last
year, when students at Yeshivat AMIT Kfar Batya in Ra’anana spread out
over the city’s cemeteries on Remembrance Day in search of unattended
graves. The positive reactions led the AMIT network’s CEO Dr. Amnon
Eldar to expand the project to all of the AMIT schools across the
country this year.
“It is a mitzva and honor to do something for those who gave their life for the country,” Eldar said.
