OTS’s Jacob Sapirstein “Ariel” High School in Ramot

Last Friday, we woke up to news of the horrific tragedy that took place at Meron: 45 people lost their lives in a stampede during the Lag Ba’Omer celebrations near the tomb of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai.

OTS mourned the victims along with the nation; students paid visits to bereaved families, the schools’ flags were lowered to half mast, and the network is studying mishnayot in memory of those who died and reciting Tehillim to merit the speedy physical and emotional recovery of the wounded.
