Even as our students strive to provide support, solidarity and compassion to those in need, they simultaneously draw tremendous strength from the families they encounter – especially during this period, which has brought forth so many heroic and inspirational figures. Such a meeting occurred this week at OTS’s Jennie Sapirstein Junior High and High School for Girls in Ramot, Jerusalem, whose students had the privilege of meeting with Iris Haim, the mother of Yotam Haim (z”l), one of three hostages killed in error by IDF troops in northern Gaza in December.

Iris, a powerful and radiant woman, shared Yotam’s life story, his beliefs and his strengths, illustrating a continuous journey of ups and downs during which she never stopped believing in him. She spoke about the small joys alongside grief and difficulty, about choosing life, about optimism and positive thinking.

For our students it was a powerful lesson that they will take along with them forever.
