Shema Hashem: Remembering the Toulouse Tragedy
March 19, 2014, marks the second Yahrzeit of the shooting in Toulouse, France that killed Rabbi Sandler, two of his children, and a little girl.
A Yahrzeit is the anniversary of a loved one’s loss. Generally people get together to remember their loss, support each other, talk, reminisce over old times with the loved one, eat some good food, and burn a Yahrzeit candle. It’s a beautiful ritual that helps survivors to celebrate, process, and remember the one(s) they lost. This is a beautiful video commemorating the evil terrorist act committed in Toulouse, France two years ago:
