Journey of a Pendant

Leah Gebber

When Tova Klein visited the Yvel Design Center and bought a pendant with the message Am Echad, she had no idea of the journey on which she was about to embark. Throughout the search for the three murdered teens, and Rachel Frankel’s call for unity, throughout the Gaza war, the pendant accompanied her. And when the war was over, Tova embarked on a mission to gift each bereaved mother with this beautiful reminder of the unity of our nation.
