"We stand here like mourners in 'Shloshim,' with our eyes  full of tears, chanting 'Kadish' for the 'Kiddushim."

"May the Lord remember the souls of the jews of Devenishok--men, women, and children who met their death by violent cruelty for the sanctification of the name of G-d. May their souls be bound up in the bond of life, eternally together with the souls of all the righteous in paradise. Amen."
