Hundreds of people attend the burial of Mount Meron disaster victim Yedidya Fogel, 22, as the series of funerals for the 45 victims of the deadly stampede on Lag B’Omer continues after Shabbat.
Hundreds also take part in the funeral in Ramle for Yosef Mastorov, 17, whose father says in a eulogy that “we had a dream to see him [get married] under the chuppah, with his brothers and sisters.”
The father adds: “He told me, ‘I’m going to Meron.’
“I said, ‘Why do you need to go there?’
“He told me, ‘Father I want to pray all night and then I’ll go back to yeshiva.’
“I know now that he is learning above.”
