A Message from Young Judaea's National Mazkirut
Today, Young Judaea joins the Jewish community in mourning the loss of a beloved Israeli hero. One of the founding fathers of Israel, Peres came over from Poland as a young boy and joined in fighting to create the state of Israel. Throughout his life, Peres made monumental contributions to the state. From instituting Israeli nuclear power to receiving the Nobel Peace prize for his role in the Oslo Accords, he is truly an inspiration.
Shimon Peres was a leader who embodied much of what we value in Young Judaea, Strong leadership, the Zionist dream, and the pursuit of peace. His life’s work pushes us to continue our work as a Zionist youth movement.
As we learn to cope with this tragic loss, we can remember Peres’s words. “The most important thing in life is to dare. The most complicated thing in life is to be afraid. The smartest thing in the world is to try to be a moral person.” It’s now our duty to continue on his legacy and ask ourselves “What can we do to honor his memory?”
