Good post.
The wreath business freaks me out. It is totally goyish. The standing in silence doesn't feel right. the best is a silent, personal prayer at the time. One of my neighbors makes the shofar sound like a siren. Considering that, maybe that's the real origin of the siren. Treat it like a shofar, a call to talk to G-d.

I did not understand Rabbi Tsfar to be against standing specifically this year. He is against it per se, as we should be using Jewish methods to commemorate their memories, and we should raise the discussion among the Israeli public to change the method to one that is morwe Jewish.

But I saw nothing from Rabbi Tsfar indicating that until that day that we do change the method that we should not stand while everyone else does.
