After Ezra Schwartz of Sharon, Massachusetts, was tragically killed on Friday in a West Bank apprehension attack, his Jewish village was heartbroken. Thousands collected during a wake for Schwartz, who in his 18 years did so most to lighten his community, and who died while spending a opening year in a nation that he loved, Israel, where he was study and volunteering.
