The following is a sample letter expressing condolences to the family of Lt. Hanan Barak, of our Partnership 2000 city of Arad, on the loss of their son. Please feel free to personalize it when writing to the Baraks.


Dear Mr. and Mrs. Barak,


We wish to express our deepest sympathy for the loss of your son, Lt. Hanan Barak, who died defending the people and state of Israel.


Our community in New Jersey has been a partner of the Arad community for many years and we have been fortunate to visit your city on numerous occasions. I have been particularly lucky to have visited the ORT High School, where students have shared with us their insights along with their hopes. We were particularly saddened to learn that Hanan was a graduate of the school.


Everyone in the Jewish community benefits from the sacrifices Israelís soldiers make every day, protecting the nation and working toward a better future. We pray for peace. May the Almighty comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.



(Your name)

Please feel free to cut and paste the letter in the left column. However, it may be more meaningful to use it merely as a guide, and to write your own letter to the family of Lt. Hanan Barak.

Your letter will be sent to the P2K office in Arad, and forwarded to the Barak family.
