Israel To Plant Grove In Memory Of Sandy Hook Victims

Source: Israel Today


A special grove that will be planted as part of a new environmental and commercial area in the southern city of Beersheva will be named in memory of the 26 children and teachers who were mercilessly gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, CT last month.

The Zionist women's organization Hadassah came up with the idea for the grove, and to date has collected enough donations for the Jewish National Fund to plant 3,300 trees in the grove.

Hadassah in turn got the idea from Veronique Pozner, mother of little Noah Pozner (pictured), who was the only Jewish victim of the school shooting. When asked how sympathizers could honor her son, Mrs. Pozner reportedly told them to plant trees in Israel.

Hadassah President Marcie Natan told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that she wanted to honor not just Noah, but all those killed in the tragedy.
