Trib­ute to Yoni Jes­ner

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community -

THE STORY of a young Glaswe­gian killed in a Tel Aviv bus bomb­ing al­most 10 years ago was told to Bri­tish gap year stu­dents in Is­rael.

Youth leader Yoni Jes­ner was 19 when he died. One of his kid­neys was used to save the life of a Pales­tinian girl.

Speak­ers at the event — or­gan­ised by the Yoni Jes­ner Foun­da­tion, Bnei Akiva and Stand With Us Is­rael — were Yoni’s mother Mar­sha Glad­stone and for­mer Jerusalem Post ed­i­tor David Horovitz, who re­flected on life in Is­rael at the time.
