IDF Delegation Tells Bruriah and RTMA Students ‘Remember the Names; It’s About the Names’

The message a touring IDF Delegation left Bruriah and RTMA students on the first stop of a two-week tour of NY and NJ is to remember the names of the fallen. In response to Bruriah G.O. President Shira Allen’s question, “What can we students here in America do to help the soldiers?” Delegation representative Naftali Gross told the audience the answer is fourfold. He suggested, “Send food, toiletries and gifts. They give the soldiers a lift and make them feel like a part of the bigger Jewish community. Advocacy and educating others is a way to counter the propaganda. Make your presence felt by visiting, doing a year of service and spending extended time in Israel in other ways. Mostly, though, remember the names of those who fell during their fight to protect our homeland.”
