Yom ha-Zikaron was marked with a ceremony at BRS on Tuesday 17 April. Rabbi Maurice recited Yizkor and the Memorial Prayer while other appropriate readings were led by members of the community. He commented that at a time when we were celebrating Israel's 70th anniversary it was fitting that we remember those whose lives were sacrificed for the establishment and subsequent survival of the Jewish State. A tree was planted in the Synagogue grounds in their memory along with a second tree in memory of Sergeant First Class Nadav Ezra, the Rabbi's grandson, who died whilst on active service in January 2016.  

Deborah Tendler, the Synagogue Chair, recalled Bournemouth's links with Israel through twinning with Netanyah and informed those present that the holes for the trees had been lined with soil from the Reform congregation in Ra'anana with whom BRS is twinned.
