President Lights Hanukkah Candles with Terror Victims


President Shimon Peres hosted a Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony, Thursday, for 70 victims of terror who lost relatives in attacks and lit the third Hanukkah light with them.

Peres said he was moved, not only by the joy of the event, but by the presence of the celebrants and the burden they carried, calling all of them "heroes". He said great things were expected of them and he was sure they would exceed the expectations.
