Yom HaZikaron: The Power of Jewish Peoplehood Through Personal and Collective Mourning

Recorded LIVE on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 at 8:00 PM

Listen to an intimate conversation about loss and the healing power of personal and collective mourning as shared by Israelis who know the heartache and anguish from their own experiences. 

Solomon Shapiro, a lone soldier in the IDF originally from New York will talk about his JCC experience and facilitate a conversation from the home of Leah Garber, director of JCC Association’s Center for Israel Engagement. 

Panelist will include: Alon Carmeli and Gal Carmeli, the father and sister, respectively, of Sean Carmeli, a lone solider killed while on duty in Gaza in 2014; Hemi Goldin, a brother of Hadar Goldin, who was killed during Operation Tzuk Eitan in Gaza in 2014, but whose remains have not been returned to Israel; the Jerusalem folk singers Tamar & Netanel, who will perform two songs, one of which, “A Moon’s Aura,” was written by Hadar’s brother to describe a painting he created for his finance, Edna, when they first began dating; and Bat Galim Shaer, mother of Gilad Shaer, one of three teenagers kidnapped from a West Bank bus station and killed in June 2014.
