We began the day with Yehuda Meshi Zahav, the founder of Zaka.
The organization is best known for treating the bodies of victims of terror with respect and helping to identify them after an attack. However they do so much more! They support the families of victims of terror and those affected by traffic accidents and suicide. Yehuda comes from the Haredi or ultra-orthodox community, yet he has found that all humanity is deserving of support and respect at these ultimate moments. His executive director, a secular woman, served as his translator. When he spoke, though most did not understand his own words, we could all feel his powerful commitment to Jewish traditions, service of others and his country, and human dignity. He has personally built an organization that spans the country of Israel and that helped in the attack in Taba, Egypt just as they had in Italy and in the synagogue bombings in Turkey. With pride, he said that while the name Zaka originally stood for Zihui Korbanot Ason (Identifying the victims of terror attacks) it now stands for Z'man Keruv Achim (Time to bring brothers together). He was but one of the true heroes we met on this trip.
