Thousands to Attend March in Memory of Lamed-Heh

35 brave soldiers attempted to deliver arms and medical supplies to besieged Gush Etzion on the eve of the declaration of independence, but were overrun by the Arab enemy. A memorial march commemorating their mighty effort will take place along an 8-mile hike in Gush Etzion Thursday night, featuring campfires and sing-alongs, multimedia presentations and a unique laser show. Some 6,500 participants are expected to take part.
