This is a Very Special Dedication
This Ark was created by me at a time of great sadness
in my life, caused by an act of hate. The only true antidote to hate is
love. I hope that the Ark will generate a lot of love. Making the Ark has
helped to return some happiness to my life.
They used to say that the pen was more powerful
than the sword, so now I say "More power to the pixel".
I do hope that before you board the Ark you will take
a moment to glance at my memorial to my son, Arik, a warrior and a poet,
killed by the Hamas in 1994. Arieh my lion, so that "... out of the
strong shall come forth sweetness..." ( Judges, Samson ).
Below is a picture of Yitzchak Rabin, late
Prime Minister of Israel, beside the photograph of Arik and my younger
son. Also in the picture is a photograph of Sefi Showman who fell in 1982
and other family members.
