Sukkot Hike Raises Money for Camp Koby

Sukkot hike raises money for Camp Koby.

More than 60 people took part in a special one day Kilometers for Koby Sukkot hike along the Israel Trail and the Burma Road this week to help raise funds for Camp Koby, established in memory of terror teenage victim Koby Mandell.

He and a friend were killed nearly 13 years ago in a terrorist attack while hiking near their home in Tekoa, east of Efrat in Gush Etzion. The tragedy spurred his parents, Rabbi Seth and Sherri Mandell, to create The Koby Mandell Foundation to benefit the families of others who have lost loved ones to terror and other tragic circumstances. The   hike began at Neve Shalom and ended in Park Eshtaol and included both Israelis and American tourists.

    I can’t imagine why the Jewish Press wastes ink on this triviality.

    There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of non-Jewish people who wear the Star of David as a way of showing their support for Israel or that are making a stand against antisemitism in solidarity with the Jewish people……………

  6. Ms. Silverman has nothing to do with this story. I actually clicked on it because I would be pleased to have something positive to think of her. They’re pushing a fluffball about how she is wearing a cross on some meaningless talkshow on the page with the otherwise lovely story about people raising money for a camp named after Koby Mandell, who was murdered by Arabs at the age of 13, along with his friend Yosef Ishran, 14.
