The state commission of inquiry into the deadly crush at Mount Meron in April begins working today.

Members of the commission, headed by former Supreme Court chief justice Miriam Naor, have asked to receive a series of documents and materials related to the tragedy that killed 45 people on Lag B’Omer. The committee is cooperating with the criminal investigation already opened by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit.
