Aron Kodesh in memory of Yaakov Don, HY”D
On 8 Kislev 5756 (November 19, 2015), Rav Yaakov Don was murdered in a terrorist attack near the Gush Etzion Junction (south of Jerusalem). Yaakov loved with a huge heart, and was loved by all in return. The warm and inclusive smile which never left Yaakov’s face was legendary; it immediately put everyone at ease, lightened the atmosphere and provided strength and happiness to all who surrounded him. For Yaakov, being an educator was a mission as much about teaching as it was about providing confidence, security and warmth to his students, whom he treated like his own children. This is his legacy.
