I'm sitting in a cafe in Jerusalem planning out the details of our second Kilometers for Koby fund raising hike.
"We'll start on Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day) at Mount Hertzl. That's appropriate, I think," our guide Allan Rabinowitz tells me, pointing to a spot on his topographic map.

Yesterday, Yom Hazikaron, we went to the cemetery in Kfar Etzion for the ceremony for fallen soldiers and terror victims.
Before the ceremony, we arranged to meet Gidon, a classmate of Koby's, at the grave. Gidon is now a teacher at Ohr Torah Stone, the junior high school that he and Koby attended when Koby was murdered.

Giving Voice: Holocaust Remembrance Day
This morning after the siren in commemoration of the six million who died in the Holocaust, a friend called to tell me that she cried on Yom ha Shoah: she wishes her parents were still alive. She would like to speak to them. Her father's first family was killed in the Shoah, and she doesn't know where or how. He didn't speak about it.
