Olympic Memorial - Islington Green 2.jpegLast Friday, Chabad Islington held a memorial ceremony to remember the eleven Israeli Olympic athletes and coaches that were massacred during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Germany.

The event took place at Islington Green Memorial just prior to the Olympic opening ceremony in Stratford.  Everyone who took part felt the power of the ceremony and understood the importance of the cause. One lady who partipated said, "I think that this was such a great initiative and a most worthy cause".

Rabbi Korer said, "The energy and unity in Islington in preparation for the Games is truly phenomenal. Let us not forget one of the darkest moments in the history of the International Olympic Family".
