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.
