The Consulate General of Israel in Philadelphia and the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia invite the community to attend a Memorial Day Ceremony honoring Israel's fallen soldiers and all victims of terrorism on Tuesday, April 24, 7:30 p.m., at Har Zion Temple, 1500 Hagys Ford Rd., Penn Valley.
Immediately following the ceremony, there will be a screening of the movie A Green Kippah. This film, produced and directed by Sally Mitlas, commemorates Yom Hazikaron, Israel's Memorial Day, by chronicling the lives and tragic deaths of three American Jews with strong family ties to the United States: David Solomonov (z"l), Rita Levine (z"l) and Michael Levin (z"l).
All three died in the prime of their lives -- whether it be through acts of terrorism, a sniper's bullet or defending the borders of Israel.
A Green Kippah reminds us that when Israel loses a son or a daughter, it is felt by every Jew around the world, not just by those living on Israeli soil, said Mitlas.
