Leora has already written about this. This is one of numerous trees in the community that are bedecked with yellow ribbons as a show of solidarity and as an expression of support for Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar, and Naftali Frenkel. Yellow ribbons are being sold to raise money for the various funds to support the soldiers looking for the missing teens (such as this). The yellow ribbons from this campaign didn’t fit around this mighty oak, so I had to make do with a large yellow plastic tablecloth, cut into strips.
As Mrs. S says, may we soon be privileged to enjoy besurot tovot, yeshu’ot v’nechamot (good tidings, salvation and consolation).
