A special dedication from the creator of this ark

This Ark was created by Rebecca Bat-Raphael in memory of Arik, her son, who was kidnapped and murdered by Hamas terrorists in 1994.

As a firm believer in peace between all people I could never envisage any violent revenge. But if we wish to change the future we need to remember the past.

Included here are some extracts of Arik's poetry, his ideas about peace and the story of his short life. During the coming months I intend to publish all of Arik's writings and poems and pictures as well as more details of his life and beliefs.
