Impressive memorial exercises for the several thousand Jewish volunteers in the French army who fell in the Battle of Carency on May 9, 1915, were held at the Tournel Synagogue on Thursday.
The synagogue was filled with relatives of the war heroes and members of the Association of Jewish Volunteers. After the exercises, the congregation marched to the grave of the Unknown Soldier, carrying a French flag with a Mogen David in the center. A soldier, blinded during the battle, lighted the flame at the grave.
