Remembering ORT Alumnus Yohan Cohen

Posted on Monday 12th January 2015

Everyone at ORT UK was of course deeply saddened and troubled by events that took place in Paris last month. Our thoughts are with all of the victims of terror but we think especially at this time of Yohan Cohen, 22 who was tragically killed along with three other Jews in the Kosher supermarket  in Porte de Vincennes. Yohan was an alumnus of one of ORT’s Paris schools, ORT Villiers-le-Bel. May Yohan’s memory and the memories of Philip Braham, 40, Francois-Michel Saada and Yoav Hattab, 21 be a blessing to us all.
