      Hundreds at Funeral for Kiryat Ono Torah Scrolls


      A funeral service was held, Thursday afternoon, for eight Torah scrolls that were destroyed last Shabbat, when the Etz Chayim syngagogue in Kiryat Ono, east of Tel Aviv, caught fire. Hundreds of people showed up for lamentations in the courtyard of the synagogue.

      At 18:45, the Torah scrolls will be placed in earthenware pots and will be brought to be buried at the Yarkon Cemetery.
