"In My Name, I Want No Vengeance." - The Call of Michal Halev


Here is a message of peace from my friend Michal Halev, the mother of Laor Avramov who was murdered on October 7th, 2023. I share this with you and stand behind her:

"My name is Michal Halev. My son La’or was murdered last week by Hamas terrorists. I made this appeal for love and healing instead of vengeance because I don’t want other mothers to experience the unbearable pain I’m going through. Please help people the world over hear my anguish, and maybe seeds of peace can be planted in the fields of battle and hatred."
