Anniversary of Aaron's Passing at Tombs of His Sons


Hundreds marked the anniversary of the passing of Aaron the High Priest by praying, Sunday evening, at the tombs of his sons, Elazar and Itamar, in the Samarian (Shomron) Palestinian Authority-assigned village of Awarta.

While most of the worshipers were from the hareidi-religious community, religious Zionists and secular Jews were also represented. The visit was organized by the Samaria Regional Council and the Shechem Echad organization, in coordination with the Israel Defense Forces and other security services.
