Last Shabbat, just before Friday night dinner, members of the Salomon family were slaughtered by a Palestinian who was upset because Israel installed metal detectors after two Israeli soldiers (not Jewish, they were Druze) were murdered by another Arab terrorist on the Temple Mount last week. By sheer luck an off duty Israeli soldier (pictured below) heard the screams next door and shot the intruder, but not until three Jews lay in a pool of blood next to their Shabbat table. 

Join us THIS Tuesday Evening (7/25) at 7pm at the JCC as we mourn the loss of Yosef Salomon and his children Chaya and Elad.
Stand with us not only to honor their lives, but to stand with Israel as the world continues to condemn her for wanting to ensure safety and peace in Jerusalem.

Come and get a better understanding of what has been happening this summer in Israel and why we must not remain silent.

We will review a short clip from a recent movie called Beneath the Helmet: From High School to the Home Front
which explores five young soldiers personal lives, dreams, fears and dilemmas, revealing the human side of Israel's military and the inspiring young people who make up the IDF. The full movie will be screened later this summer.
