As you know, Israel suffered a terrible tragedy Thursday night at Mount Meron during a celebration of Lag Ba'Omer. At least 45 people were killed, and many more injured, in one of the worst peacetime disasters in Israeli history. Israel has declared Sunday as a day of national mourning.


Our Detroit Jewish community was shocked and saddened by this truly horrible calamity. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families, and we are praying for the recovery of those who were injured. As always, we stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Israel, sharing their pain in times of grief.


We invite our entire community to a gathering to mourn those who were lost and stand in solidarity with the People of Israel. Please join us this Sunday at 7pm, via zoom, for a brief ceremony.
