The death of my younger son, Niot, has been a heavy blow to me and my family. As we approach the end of the 30-day mourning period, I have created pages in Hebrew and English containing a short biography of Niot as well as instructions about how to contribute to the two projects we are in the process of setting up in his memory—one to help soldiers without families in the Golani Brigade and another to help learning-disabled students.
Later this week I’ll post my latest “Necessary Stories” column, which I devoted to Niot, and further material will follow.
Thanks to all the readers who sent their condolences to me and the family. We have been strengthened in this difficult time by the amazing support we have received from family, friends, our community, Kehilat Yedidya, and the IDF.
And special thanks to Jeff Green for translating the eulogies and to David Abitbol, SoJo’s tech wizard, for helping set up the memorial pages.
