Kiddush Hashem: Gateshead Cheder Children Hold Moment of Silence for Terror Victims


The Gateshead Primary School held a moment of silence on Thursday morning to remember those who died and were injured in Monday’s Manchester bombing.

22 people were killed and 59 injured as they left a concert at Manchester Arena on Monday evening, when a suicide bomb exploded.

Thursday morning at 11AM, (local time) millions of people across the United Kingdom paused for one minute of silence to honor the dead and support the injured. The Gateshead Cheder students and Rabbeim are pictured standing orderly outside their yeshiva building, many holding signs reading “We Stand With Manchester.”

Salman Abedi was identified as the suicide bomber who carried out the attack. His brother and father have since been detained. Abedi is believed to have travelled to Syria and had links with ISIS.
