“The most inspiring story came from the group of women visiting from Mexico City. Their energy and love of life inspired all of the women around them. After a deep and emotional day visiting Yad Vashem and Mount Herzl, they heard Cheryl Mandel speak about her son, Daniel, who was killed in battle in Nablus.
Inspired by Cheryl’s story and later getting to see the valuable work of the One Family Fund in Jerusalem, the women looked for a creative way to bring back their stories and experiences to the community in Mexico City. They decided they would like to help the One Family Fund by translating their bereaved mothers’ cookbook, A Taste For Life, into Spanish. The cookbook brings to life the tastes and memories of the children each mother lost to war or terror. The Spanish translation will be sold in Mexico City at an event that the JWRP delegation will host to support Israel.”
