Last night's Memorial Day ceremonies at Meitar's amphitheater continued this morning at our small cemetery near the forest.
At the gate, bunches of flowers were handed to the grieving families to put on the graves of their soldier sons and daughters.
Ready for the rabbis and cantors--the army's booklet of prayers for Memorial Day.
After the half hour ceremony, the officers and the families went up to the small military section of the cemetery and gathered informally around the several graves.
At nightfall we will make the sudden transition into joyously celebrating Independence Day.
