A memorial to the victims of last summer’s Hebrew University bombing was dedicated Monday. The living sculpture, “Tilted Tree,” was created by Ran Morin and consists of an actual tree planted at an angle, as if disturbed by the physical blast of the explosion. “This tree, whose roots were shaken, will continue to grow, will continue to bear fruit,” university president Menachem Magidor said. Four Americans and a French-American citizen were among the nine people killed in the July 31, 2002, attack.
