Merkaz HaRav Memorial Book

From the Merkaz Memorial (paid announcement):

To all the readers of Hirhurim, we need your help!

We are organizing a major fundraising campain to honor the memory of the victims of the terrorist attack at Merkaz Harav. Our fundraising efforts will go towards publishing a book in their memory which will be a compilation of articles written by different prominent Rabbis on the subject of Unity.

1. It will be a lasting memorial for those killed, not something which goes away after a while.
2. It will bring a lot of merit to their souls whenever people read words of Torah from these books.
3. It is something everyone can unite towards.

Ideologically, it also seems like an appropriate response – fighting darkness with light.
