I had the honor of moderating a panel at the international Holocaust memorial day ceremony as part of the Women in Zionism seminar. During the panel Holocaust survivors and students from the “Chen” Young Ambassadors school participated. It was a very moving day, with the panel dealing with one of the most important issues for the Jewish people and Israel: the Holocaust. We must remember the past to guarantee a safe future.
I wish to thank all of the panelists: Holocaust survivors Devora Weinstein; Rachel Pinhas, Magda Vox, second generation Simcha Yosef and Naima Mastro. The Young Ambassadors, tomorrow’s leaders, who came were Shaked Tubis, Tal Zaidman, and Shelly Nizri. Thanks as well to Mr. Yaakov Hagoel, Vice Chairman of the World Zionist Organization, who spoke about contemporary anti-semitism. A special thanks to Shlomi Ashkenazi, CEO of the World Zionist organization, and to Aviva Hazan, for making the seminar possible for the 1,200 women who came from all around Israel.
