Washington — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) vigorously defended her vote for increased funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile-interception system.

Aharon Sofer, a 23-year-old yeshiva student from Lakewood, N.J., was buried on Friday in Beit Shemesh, a day after his body was found in the Jerusalem Forest. He had been the object a week-long search after he disappeared while hiking with a friend.
