“If you wish it won’t be a legend” – Theodor Herzl

I am stimulated not only because I belong, but also by the continuity of the new generations, the legacy of the preceding ones, Israel as-a big miracle, the major role of Jewish communities worldwide. In summary, I am deeply stimulated by the fact that I am part of the history.

“The most important thing in life is to cheer up. The most complicated thing in life is to be afraid. The smartest thing in the world is to try to be a moral person.” – Shimon Peres

To me, community is the legacy, the school, and transmission. It’s traditions, family and friends, and the place in the world in which history has situated us. It involves resisting the events of the Shoah and the responsibility that no Jew will go through something like it again. It is the frame of my identity and inspires me to take care, reproduce, and convey it to future generations.

Gabriel Katz Palatkin – Uruguay

What prompts me to work in the community is, on one hand, my family’s example and education and on the other, a deep sense of Jewish-Zionist identity.
