B’nai B’rith UK would like to express its deep shock and sorrow at the tragedy that has unfolded on Mount Meron. At least 45 Israelis are reported to have been killed during Lag B’Omer, an event which is normally a festive celebration but which has now turned into a horrifying spectacle of loss and suffering. We extend our sincerest condolences to those who have lost loved ones and wish a full recovery to those who have been injured.
