The Merkaz Harav yeshiva in Jerusalem held a memorial Thursday evening for the eight young students murdered by a terrorist five years earlier.
Rabbis at the school spoke in honor of the slain students. The event bridged political divides, with ministers from Shas sitting alongside MKs from Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) despite the two parties’ recent political clashes.
The students killed in the 2008 attack were gunned down as they sat studying in the yeshiva library. Six of the victims were high school students.
