Moving forward: Crystallizing the unity

The tragic events of the past couple of weeks have broken our hearts and tested our faith. The turn of events have caused us to turn inward, to unify in mourning for the boys and in support of their families. This unity, or “achdut,” is an incredible opportunity. To turn “lemons into lemonade” and unify to bring positive change for our country, our families. Now is the time to make Israel a better place. To show those that try and destroy us that we continue to grow and create a better for future for generations to come.

Crystalizing this unity that we have felt over the past several weeks can come in many forms. Increased acts of kindness, and movements such as these, which take the unity and events that we have experienced and create concrete meaning with them.

Moving forward, I would like to take this unity we have felt to new heights, to move forward positive change for the entire nation of Israel.

Join me.
