Re-dedication Ceremony of Sarah Schenirer's Gavestone, 2005

Re-dedication Ceremony of Sarah Schenirer's Gavestone, 2005

"Frau Schenirer, we are not merely placing a memorial on your grave site. We are placing it upon our hearts: for us, and for all the generations who will come after us." Bais Ya’akov students and teachers from around the world attended the 2005 re-dedication ceremony of Sarah Schenirer’s gravestone, and with these words, the director of the Central Bais Ya'akov in Jerusalem eulogized the woman to whom all had come to pay their respects.

Institution: Devorah Sandorfy Sabag, Jerusalem
