THE JEWISH WORLD
Israel came to a standstill on Monday morning at 10 a.m. as the national memorial siren sounded, stopping traffic on the country’s roads and allowing drivers and pedestrians alike to reflect on the horrors of the Holocaust....
In the streets just outside The Jerusalem Post’s editorial offices, ultra-Orthodox residents of the capital stood at attention as the siren blared.
Many among the ultra- Orthodox have taken on a custom to recite psalms during the two-minute commemoration.
After the siren ended, President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu took part in a wreath-laying ceremony at Yad Vashem’s Warsaw Ghetto Square in the presence of US Secretary of State John Kerry and senior Israeli officials.
