Restoring the Service to the “Dvir”
Students at OTS’s Neveh Channah High School for Girls, in memory of Anna Ehrman, exhibited increased social involvement in light of security events that occurred recently in the Gush Etzion area.
After making cookies for locally-serving soldiers and attaching personal thank-you letters, and after participating in a memorial service for Ari Fuld z”l, Tenth Graders created a special mosaic in memory of Dvir Sorek z”l depicting the road leading to the Dvir [sanctuary]. The decision to design and create the sign came in the wake of an emotional encounter with Dvir’s grandmother, during which they learned about the young man’s life and legacy.
The Hebrew words “VeHashev et ha’avoda l’Dvir beitecha” ( “restore the service to Your sanctuary”) are emblazoned across the top of the sign, which will be placed on the path leading from the city of Efrat towards OTS’s Robert M. Beren Yeshivat Hesder Machanaim, where Dvir was a student.
One of the students said, “We hope that those walking on the pathway will see the sign and connect to the power of all those who walk in the ways of our ancestors, through a love of Torah, the people and the land.”
