This year’s torch-lighting ceremony in Jerusalem kicking off Israel’s Independence Day celebrations is honoring security forces, rescue personnel and volunteers. The lighters include a Magen David Adom volunteer, an Egged bus driver who pushed a suicide terrorist off his bus and the founder of an organization whose fervently Orthodox members scour disaster and terrorist attack scenes for human remains to be buried.
