Obama is shaking hands with members of the children’s choir following  a cantor’s recitation of the memorial prayer “El Maleh Rachamim,” or “God, Full of Mercy.”

From the Hall of Remembrance, he filed out with his hosts and entourage en route to the nearby memorial for children killed by the Nazis. That is to be his last stop at Yad Vashem.
