Yizkor Pledges
The text below is reproduced from the speech by ICCJ President David Hasson at the Yizkor Service, Yom Kippur 5775

Good day everyone.

We are here together at this moment during our Yom Kippur Yizkor Service to remember some of the very important traditions that we have as Jews. As the rabbi pointed out last night , one of the many great traditions we have is HOPE. As was so beautifully pointed out in the story she told, a tree was planted so that generations to come would enjoy it. There was hope for the future. But let’s remember that the tree, like any other tree to be enjoyed for generations, needed to take root. And what it needed to take root, like any tree, was nourishment. And once the tree took root, like any tree, constant nourishment had to be given, so that the tree would continue to be there to be enjoyed. (Click here for more).
