A group of Westchester-area high school students had a close call last Friday night on the beach in Tel Aviv but they’re not packing up to come home.Six seniors at Solomon Schechter High School of Westchester were within a few hundred feet of the Tel Aviv nightclub where a suicide attack killed five people and wounded about 50 others. None of the students were hurt, and Elliot Spiegel, the school’s headmaster, said the 12th grade class would not cut short its trip as a result of the bombing.

Each year the 12th-grade students of the Solomon Schechter School of Westchester spend a week in Poland, on the way to Israel, learning about Jewish history at the site of death camps, synagogues and forests. This year their most poignant lesson came at an antiques shop on a Warsaw side street. They discovered a Torah scroll there.

An entire high school sat shiva, symbolically, this week. The 250 high school students at the Solomon Schechter School of Westchester in Hartsdale observed a week of mourning for Lital Gamliel, 18, a senior living in Riverdale. Ms. Gamliel was killed Saturday night when the car driven by her boyfriend, who was drag racing in Yonkers, crossed the road and crashed into oncoming traffic. She was sitting in the passenger seat and died at the scene. Her body was taken for burial to her native Israel.
