Heart rending and beautiful: One Family's Remembrance Day ceremony

Several years ago, the government of Israel decided that Remembrance Day would also honor terror victims and not just IDF soldiers who had been killed (not necessarily) in action. It was a decision that was long overdue in my opinion and it ended the anomaly of soldiers who were killed in a terror attack being honored on Remembrance Day while civilians who were killed in the same attack were not.

One Family is probably the premier organization in Israel helping terror victims. Started by our friends Marc and Chantal Belzberg when their daughter decided in the middle of the intifada that she would rather that her parents spend money on a good cause than on her bat mitzva, One Family helps the survivors of terror attacks - both the wounded and the families of the dead and wounded. Unfortunately, those people usually need help for the rest of their lives.

Here's a highlight video from One Family's Remembrance Day ceremony. If after seeing the video you wish to donate to One Family, you will be doing a big mitzva and helping a lot of people.

Let's go to the videotape.
