Glow in the night sky

The mysterious event occurred on September 9 in the night sky: many photographers spotted a strange glow coming from the space transportation system, better known as the Space Shuttle.

Holocaust Memorial Day (Yom Ha-Shoah)

The full name of the day commemorating the victims of the Holocaust is “Yom Hashoah Ve-Hagevurah”— literally the “Day of (remembrance of) the Holocaust and the Heroism.” It is marked on the 27th day in the month of Nisan — a week after the seventh day of Passover, and a week before Yom Hazikaron (Memorial Day for Israel’s fallen soldiers). It marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.
