Spread the Word, Israel’s Advocacy Group at Sydney’s Kesser Torah Girls High School, lived up to its name this week when students conducted a program supporting  Five Minutes of Silence in protest against Gilad Shalit’s five years in captivity.

Students at KTC

 

The students have followed the plight of the Israeli soldier since his capture by Hamas in 2006.

The program on KTC’s campus was dedicated to the Fogel family, three members of which were brutally murdered in Itamar on 11 March. The students made blue, white and yellow bracelets and sang chapters of Tehillim, accompanied by several students on guitars, in recognition of these tragic events.

KTC Principal Rabbi Noteh Glogauer addressed the students, some of whom were moved to tears during the proceedings. He emphasised the importance of reaching within oneself and focusing on spreading goodness, and complimented the students on their powerful expression of unity and solidarity.

“We are connected by the very essence and fibre of our being to our brothers and sisters in Israel, and therefore the positive acts and deeds we perform in our own world affect a chain, linking us all,” Rabbi Glogauer said.

“We remember the Fogel family and Gilad every day in our Tefillot,” said one of the students. “We believe that by doing good deeds and spreading light in the world during these dark times, we are retaliating in our own way.”
