      Knesset Memorial for Destroyed Gush Katif Synagogues


      The Knesset will hold a special memorial on Wednesday to remember the synagogues of Gush Katif. The synagogues were destroyed in 2005 following the Disengagement from Gaza which removed all Jewish and Israeli presence from the region.
       
      Parts of an Aron Kodesh, the Holy Ark in which the Torah scrolls are kept, from one of the synagogues will be placed on display as well as other remnants of the buildings.
