Erev Sukkot is always colored for us by the memory of our talmid, Yoni Jesner HY"D, the incredible young man he was, and the thoughts about what he might have become, and how he surely would have contributed to the world. W remember him with tears and love.
 
Yehi Zichro Baruch!
 
The Yoni Jesner Foundation established in his memory, is focusing this year on one of Yoni's "sayings", a statement which is deeply true and genuinely challenging:
 
"Every human being is beautiful. Each has his own needs, wants, desires, passions which serve to complement and influence our experiences. This realisation not only heightens our empathy towards each other but sets each person a mission."

CHAG SUKKOT SAMEACH!

IN HONOR OF THE RELEASE OF THIS NEW BOOK!

We were pleased to hear that the Jerusalem Municipality's Names Committee, with the encouragement of Mr. Dov Kalmanovich (Machzor Zayin), the deputy mayor of Jerusalem, decided to name a street after Moreinu Harav Yehuda Amital zt"l in a new neighborhood on the slopes of Givat Masua. The rabbi, who so loved the city, merited a street named after him; yishar koach to his student, who was privileged to promote this worthy and moving commemoration.
