#ShareTheLights for Ezra Schwartz


My name is Berri Wolosow. This is my friend Ezra Schwartz.

When I was in Second grade, I had few friends in my local little league baseball. That’s when I met Ezra. Ezra illuminated my life as well as the lives of many others. Ezra’s father was the coach and Ezra took me under his wing. He told me everything was going to be alright.

Last month, Ezra was murdered in Israel by Palestinian terrorists. His death shocked and shattered our community in Sharon, Massachusetts. The story touched many lives. He was even memorialized by the New England Patriots in front of millions of people.

Please join me on Chanukah, to honor his memory and add light to dispel the darkness.

I light because of darkness. Not just in spite of it, but to illuminate it; transform it. I light for all of the souls we’ve lost over the past few months. For the whole world and the nation of Israel.

I light for Ezra. Ezra the baseball player. Ezra the friend. Ezra the young boy from Sharon, Massachusetts who went on a mission to help serve soldiers living in and protecting the land of Israel.

I light for my friend. I share not only the light of the menorah, but Ezra’s light as well. The light that he can no longer share for himself. I share this light with the world. I share his light with the world.

I ask you to do the same.
