I’m 16 years old and in Israel for the summer with Camp Ramah. I had been a camper at Ramah since I was 8 and my experiences over all those summers, the mischief I caused, the friendships that filled my heart, and the singing and dancing filled me with joy. My friends and I talked about and imagined going to Israel with Ramah for many years before we were old enough and we created expectations that would make this a trip an adventure beyond our wildest dreams. We couldn’t stop smiling, laughing and singing.

The loss to our community is palpable. As we mourn and grieve the passing of our heroes and visionaries, I can’t help but think about their lives, their struggles, their laughter and tears, their families, and lives well lived. Each obituary gives us the gift of a small glimpse of the highlights of complex and loving people who lived life with passion and commitment to Tikkun Olam. I always read these stories and wish I knew them better in their lifetimes.

The Place: Sedona, Arizona – a magical and spiritual place that emits an energy of inner calm. As I hike in the red rocks and climb up, I am at a loss for words.
