LYA Commemorates September 11

LONGMEADOW – On Friday, Sept. 9, Lubavitcher Yeshiva Academy (LYA) students held a commemorative ceremony for September 11.

The program was opened by eighth grade student, Yossi Scott, who served as master of ceremonies. On hand participating in the commemorations were members of the Longmeadow Fire and Police Department, as well as Jewish War Veterans Post 26. The school prepared gifts for the special guests that were presented by middle

school students, Binyamin and Naftali Fenster and Dovi Stiefel. The early childhood students baked brownies, grades 3 and 4 made cards and grades 1 and 5 decorated magnets.

“Every year we join together to honor the memory of more than 3,000 people who died,” said Stephanie Zolotor, LYA Educational Director. “We also want to recall and celebrate how many people acted on that day. Law enforcement, fire fighters and ordinary human beings reacted with extraordinary heroism.  Today, we want to honor them and think of all of our heroes.”
