      Torah Scroll in Memory of Fallen 'Cast Lead' Soldier


      The No'am Siach congregation in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze'ev Mizrach will usher in Jerusalem Day, Tuesday afternoon, with the dedication of a Torah scroll in memory of Nitai Stern, who fell during the Cast Lead counter-terror operation in Gaza at the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009. Following 6:00 p.m. afternoon services at the synagogue on Rina Nikova Street, the scene will shift at 6:15 to the corner of Meir Gershon and Meir Yoshea' Streets, where the procession with the new Torah scroll will start.

      The Torah dedication is scheduled to start at 7:00, followed at 7:50 by a festive evening service in honor of Jerusalem Day.
