On the evening of Tuesday 17 April, a special ceremony took place at BRS to mark Yom Ha-Zikaron. Two trees were planted in the Synagogue grounds, the first in memory of those who have sacrificed their lives for the establishment and sustenance of the State of Israel and the second in memory of the Rabbi’s grandson, Sergeant First Class Nadav Ezra. Nadav was tragically killed whilst on active service in January 2016.
Rabbi Maurice explained that he felt it fitting to remember those that have performed military service for the Jewish State at a time when the Jewish
community is celebrating Israel’s seventieth anniversary. 

Chair of BRS, Deborah Tendler, 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.
