Tomer Bouhadana - victory of conscience Print

This is to show them all – that our spirit is intact. It did not break. It never will. This is my story, a soldier’s story and our story as a people of strength, pride and the courage to overcome.

On Friday, July 21 2006, the commander called me. Something told me that I was going towards a peak in my life, even though the nature of it was unknown yet.

Jack Ormut's long journey in search of home Print

Jack Ormut lives in Hong Kong but calls Israel home. Behind beautifully kind blue eyes there is a story of survival, of loss, of love, of pride, of strength and the story of a journey in search of home.

Jack was born in Tuszyn, Poland in November of 1926.  He remembers much of his childhood and describes his home that once was.  His small shtetl had a population of about 8,500, one third of who were Jewish. The Jewish community, of Tuszyn, came together to celebrate weddings and bar mitzvahs. They were simple but warm and joyous occasions.  On Saturday evenings several families would join each other for Havdalah.  They shared a meal of potatoes, beer from a cog and herring.
