40 sophomores and seniors from OTS’s Oriya High School participated in a very emotional and significant event commemorating Ori Ansbacher z”l today in Ein Yael.
Run by Hashomer Hachadash (the New Guard), the “Day for Connecting to People and the Land (adam v’adama)” engaged participants in performing agricultural work in the area – a tribute to Ori’s spirit and values.
The Oriya students also studied Torah outside in Ori’s memory, welcoming bypassers to stop and add to the discourse. “It was important to the girls to do something positive in the face of this senseless tragedy,” said Oriya principal Yonat Lemberger.
Ori was murdered simply for being Jewish.
May her memory be for a blessing.
