Thousands of Beitar residents participated in a Hachnasas Sefer Torah on Tuesday evening in memory of the Ginsburg children killed in a fire a year ago.
The rabbanim of the city led the procession with the children’s father, R’ Reuven Ginsburg, as well as Beitar’s mayor, Meir Rubinstein. Also present was Rav Yigal Rosen, Rosh Yeshivah of Ohr Yisrael, who is R’ Reuven’s uncle.
A year ago, a fire broke out in the Ginsburg’s apartment when a nightlight exploded and fell on a bed. Three older children managed to escape the fire but the two youngest, Tzvi, 2, and Efrat, 4, perished in the fire. The family’s apartment was completely destroyed.
