Bereaved Mother Lights Torch in Honor of Fallen Sons


Miriam Peretz, who lost two sons during their service in the IDF, was one of 12 women who lit a torch on Monday evening at the traditional torch lighting ceremony on Mount Herzl, which opens the Independence Day celebrations.

Peretz’s son, Eliraz, was killed in 2010 near the Gaza border. Another son, Uriel, was killed in Lebanon in late 1998.
