MY CHALLENGE TO EACH OF US...
Have you ever been to a high school reunion? The purpose is to reconnect with old
friends and maintain an identification with the school. Schools have many ways of
keeping this connection alive. There might be a trophy case for athletes, a collection
of Yearbooks, etc. Israeli high schools do something that accomplishes a similar goal
of connection but with a very different emphasis. Almost all Israeli high schools have
a memorial wall. They section off a location in the school to commemorate the alumni
who have fallen during their service in the Israeli Defense Forces. Imagine being 16
years old and everyday walking past a small section of wall that reminds you of exactly
what your fate might be. April will see the joint holidays of Yom HaZikaron (Israeli Memorial
Day) and Yom Ha’atzmaut (Israeli Independence day). These memorial walls are typically
central to the impact of both holidays. The Israelis understand the need to have a day
of sorrow before the day of celebration. They understand that each and every individual must remember the cost of keeping Israel as the Jewish State. They honor that
cost both with a memorial day and with a day of celebration. My challenge to each of
us here in America is to mark our calendars. On Monday night, April 15th, take a moment
to pause from your day. Think about the price Israeli mothers and fathers have paid
to keep Israel safe. Then take a moment and smile, cheer, or maybe even sing, because
Israel is our Jewish homeland.

Wednesday, April 24
7:30p.m.
Everyone knows someone who’s sick or suffering.
Yet when a friend or relative is under duress many of us do or
say the wrong thing or feel awkward or ill-equipped to help.
Drawing on more than eighty revelatory interviews and her
personal experience with breast cancer, Letty Cottin Pogrebin
will discuss her new book, How To Be A Friend To A Friend
Who’s Sick which takes on -- without flinching -- the most
challenging questions of how to provide comfort to people
closest to us (and how to avoid botching the effort!). Book
sale & signing to follow.
Free of charge & open to the public.

Presented in partnership with:
Bearing Witness – The Six Million
I cannot hear the words “Holocaust” or “Shoah” without experiencing a strong emotional
reaction. The barbarity of the event, the near destruction of European Jewry, defies any rational or reasonable explanation. As a young boy, I failed to appreciate the significance of
the tattooed numbers that warm weather and short sleeves led me to note on my neighbors’
arms. while my appreciation grew with time, to this day I cannot claim to fully comprehend
the horror of the Holocaust.
Only those among us who survived the fires of the Holocaust can fully comprehend. Sadly,
each passing year leaves fewer of them to pass on the reality to the rest of us. Too many
Survivors suffer from complications of advanced age, often compounded by limited resources.
For these reasons, we are extremely proud to announce the Six Million Coins Initiative spearheaded by our own Mount Sinai Memorial Parks and Mortuaries. Supported by the Los
Angeles Jewish Federation and the Shoah Foundation, we will collect six million coins to support aging Survivors and Righteous gentile Rescuers. All funds raised, without any offset for
cost, will flow to programs and organizations specifically dedicated to supporting these individuals. Additionally, the names of each and every recorded Holocaust victim will be read
aloud at a series of events.
The program begins on April 7, 2013, Yom Hashoah, at Mount Sinai Simi Valley. School children
and other volunteers will begin the reading of the names. There will be opportunities to
meet with, and learn from, Survivors. Mount Sinai and its partners will distribute the unique
Six Million Coin Tzedakah Box to collect the funds.
Please join me at this important event in Simi Valley. Your presence will honor those who
suffered horribly simply because they were Jewish. Additionally, please help fill a Six Million
Coin Tzedakah Box. By these actions we show the world that we do not forget, and that we
will not let them forget, what was done to our People.
with enduring honor to those who perished and to those who survived,
Eric J. Diamond
