(Video) In Memory of Zeevik Etzion HY"D - Vests 4 Israel
One Israel Fund..
22 May '15..
On the last day of Operation Protective Edge, Zeevik Etzion, the security chief of Kibbutz Nirim, was killed, along with his deputy, in a mortar attack. One Israel Fund has partnered with the IDF to replace all the bulletproof vests of the RavShatzim (Security Chiefs) throughout Israel. This is Zeevik's story.
Hours before the final ceasefire of Operation Protective Edge on August 26, 2014, a mortar shell killed the RavShatz (Security Chief) of Kibbutz Nirim, Zeevik Etzion HYD and his deputy officer, Shachar Melamed HYD. This campaign has been named in honor of Zeevik, whose life was tragically taken as he was doing what he loved to do most, protecting and defending his people. Zeevik devoted his life to the safety and security of his town and his region, having served as the security chief for many years and a volunteer for MDA for over 30 years. This campaign will save the lives of his fellow RavShatzim in his merit.

I visited Hevron in November 2000 after the outbreak of the Rosh Hashanah War to see what could be done to assist in the face of the growing daily attacks on the community. After returning to work for the community in the summer of 2001, a bond and a love was forged that grows to this day. My wife Melody and I merited to be married at Ma'arat HaMachpela and now host visitors from throughout the world every Shabbat as well as during the week. Our goal, "Time to come Home!"
