Legacy of bomb vic­tim

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community -

tHe brotHer of Yoni Jes­ner, the bri­tish stu­dent killed in a sui­cide bomb­ing in Is­rael seven years ago, was among the speak­ers at an ed­u­ca­tional evening in Yoni’s mem­ory at the ba head­quar­ters in tem­ple For­tune.

ari Jes­ner re­called Yoni’s in­volve­ment in bnei akiva and his pas­sion for lead­er­ship and mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in the com­mu­nity. rabbi chaim rapoport and rabbi David Ma­son also spoke. top­ics in­cluded the mean­ing of suc­cot and re­la­tion­ships be­tween Jews and the out­side world. the lat­ter was par­tic­u­larly ap­pro­pri­ate as Yoni had in­tended to train as a doc­tor and had helped save the life of a Pales­tinian girl through the do­na­tion of his or­gans.
