The Empty Table

PHOTO: Two hundred forty empty place settings and chairs line a Shabbat table in a parking lot in downtown Beaverton Friday, Nov. 10, to raise awareness of the hostages still held by Hamas in Gaza following the Oct. 7 terror attacks. Each empty place setting featured a poster on the back of its chair for one of the hostages; children's plates and cups were set at places for each child held hostage. "Nothing can fill the void of their absence at the Shabbat table," a speaker said at the event.(Rockne Roll/The Jewish Review)
