Week of 11/11/18 - The Daffodil  Project

11/14/2018 05:20:47 PM


This Sunday brought sunshine and a special project to the Diamond Family Religious School's 6th, 7th, and 8th grade classes.  Avi Frank, a student at The Davis Academy, has chosen The Daffodil Project as his service project for his bar mitzvah.  The Daffodil Project is a worldwide initiative that aspires to build a Living Holocaust Memorial by planting 1.5 million children who perished int he Holocaust in support for children suffering in humanitarian crises int he world today. The shape and color of the daffodils represent the yellow stars that Jews were forced to wear during hte Holocaust.  Yellow is the color of remembrance.  Daffodils represent our poignant hope for the future.  They are resilient and return with a burst of color each spring. The daffodils honor the memory of those who perished and also serve to honor those who survived.

Another part of The Daffodil Project is twinning.  Students can twin their b'nai mitzvah with a child who perished in the Holocaust who was not able to celebrate this important milestone.  The Am Yisrael Chai Twinning program within The Daffodil Project enables students to learn more about the Holocaust in a meaningful and personal way.
