AACI Annual Memorial Ceremony October 14, 2013

Please join us on Monday, October 14, 2013, for the AACI Annual Memorial Ceremony on this, the 40th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War.

We are honored to welcome this year’s keynote speaker, Nobel Laureate, Prof. Yisrael Aumann, father of Shlomo z’l who was a tank gunner killed in 1982 in the war in Lebanon.

Here is a video clip from last year’s ceremony.

This is the first year in a long time that we are blessed to have no NEW names to add to the Memorial Wall. May this be a tradition that we can get used to in years to come.

for more information about this year’s ceremony, or to reserve space on a bus from Jerusalem to the Sha’ar Hagai Memorial site, call 02-566-1181

Sneak Preview of Photos from Children’s and Teen’s Art Show – With Brush and Pen – April 11 2013

Last Thursday, April 11th AACI hosted the premiere of the 3rd Annual Children’s and Teen’s Art Show, with “Brush and Pen” thanks to a generous contribution by former AACI President, Gordon Sugarman (Betsy Sugarman ז”ל Memorial Fund) in memory of his beloved wife, Betsy z’l.

Kol HaKavod to all the kids and teens who participated…and their families…and of course, our beloved staff and volunteers who made this event happen!

In addition, Dr. Max & Gianna Glassman, whose generous gift has allowed us to thrive in our new facility in Talpiot were present and Dr. Max addressed the assembled crowd and Gianna assisted in the presentation of awards.

To say it was an amazing night barely describes the excitement, joy, enthusiasm and talent that we witnessed in a standing room only crowd.

We shot lots of photographs and even some video. The photos are up on our facebook page (please like us if you have not already done so) and even if you do not use facebook ordinarily, you can view them here.
